- Half-day Workshops facilitate more hands-on and collaborative activities.
- Full-day Workshops enable participants to leave with additional plans for teaching and/or research.
- Multi-day Workshops foster goal-oriented curriculum or research development, with time for one-on-one consultations with participants.
- Small group meetings with committees or groups of faculty/staff/administrators enable tailored consultations attentive to local contexts.
- One-to-one meetings allow formal or informal conversations with key community members.
- Key Practices for Fostering Engaged Learning
- Introduction to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
- Partnering with Students in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
- Scholarship of Teaching and Learning & Promotion and Tenure

Sample Descriptions for Past Plenaries and Workshops
Teaching Writing Across the University: Building on What Students Know From First-Year through Graduation
Writing matters. Students use writing both to learn and to demonstrate their learning, and employers are clamoring for stronger written communication abilities from college graduates. How can faculty across the university help students become better writers? This workshop explores strategies for building on students’ prior learning about writing and preparing students for future writing success.
Designing for Writing Transfer
This full-day workshop will introduce current research on writing transfer and discuss its implications for course design; examine first-year writing’s relationship with other university programs and initiatives; foster course planning that Identifies the core elements of the university’s first-year writing course and facilitates transfer both between class-based and online work and between first-year writing and other courses; and support collaborative brainstorming of activities for the university’s new online writing studio.
Excellence in Mentoring Undergraduate Research
Excellent mentoring can transform undergraduate research into a high-impact educational practice. Drawing from multi-institutional studies and interviews with undergraduate researchers, this interactive workshop examines best practices for mentoring research students. Attendees will explore how to adapt the identified strategies for their own disciplinary contexts and research projects.
Writing for Publication with Students
Dr. Moore will share strategies for faculty and students who are writing collaboratively for undergraduate research and students-as-partners projects. Participants also will consider their goals for publication and ethical considerations that can guide their collaboration. (Student/Faculty Combined Session)
Partnering in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
The Scholarship of Teaching of Learning (SoTL) involves faculty (sometimes in partnership with their students) undertaking systematic inquiry about student learning – informed by prior scholarship on teaching and learning – and going public with the results. This workshop will introduce SoTL in relation to other types of scholarship, share common types of SoTL research questions, survey SoTL research methods, and discuss ways to go public with SoTL results. Workshop participants will develop a focused SoTL research question and a draft research plan to explore student learning in their classrooms or degree programs.
High-Impact Educational Practices and Engaged Learning
Drawing from research on engaged learning and high-impact practices in higher education, this interactive presentation shares six key practices that individual faculty and staff can implement across classroom and co-curricular contexts to foster high-quality engaged learning.
Feedback on Prior Presentations and Workshops
“Not to overstate it but this has given me a new ‘lease’ on my professional life. The ideas you’ve helped us spark are going to form a new research agenda – so thank you!”
“I appreciate the time to think and develop ideas. You present content and examples, then give us time to apply to our own research.”
“Drafting of the Research Plan Process was informative and productive. Was able to outline a concrete plan in 4 hours!!”
“The examples you used were very helpful. I liked that they were diverse. Also good examples of resources.”
