Becoming a Grading Guru: The Grading Process and Providing Effective Feedback (Pitt UCTL)
Fri 9/22/2017 1:00PM - 2:30PM
Alumni Hall

When we think of grading, we often think of assigning a value to a piece of student work (or a stack of student work, come finals week).  Grading is actually a process that, with some instructor planning, yields information that both students and instructors can use to improve student learning. This workshop will introduce participants to types of student assessment and the steps in the grading process. Participants will have the opportunity to revise learning objectives, evaluate assessments for alignment, improve assignment descriptions, and practice offering effective feedback.  We will also briefly discuss models of grading, including grading on a curve. As a result of completing this workshop, participants will be able to:
  • Define assessment.Articulate the difference between formative and summative assessment 
  • Describe characteristics of an effective assessment
  • Explain steps in the grading process
  • Create an assignment prompt which aligns with a learning objective and communicates grading criteria to students
  • Provide effective feedback to students
  • Identify situations in which grading on a curve might be appropriate

Keynote speaker: Hank Greely, JD

Invasive brain stimulation devices have great, and to some extent, already demonstrated potential, but, like all technologies, they come with a set of challenges. This talk will talk about ethical challenges arising from the relationship between the patients, doctors, and companies; the impact such technology may have on our sense of being human and being the source of our individuality; the legal issues arising from possible unintended effects of invasive brain stimulation; and practical issues, ranging from FDA and reimbursement considerations to public fears. It will also try to situate this technology, and the issues it raises, in relation to similar emerging neurotechnologies.

Paper: Succinate Dehydrogenase Supports Metabolic Repurposing of Mitochondria to Drive Inflammatory Macrophages
Authors: Evanna L. Mills, Beth Kelly, Angela Logan, Christian Frezza, Michael P. Murphy, Luke A. O’Neill
Abstract: Activated macrophages undergo metabolic reprogramming, which drives their pro-inflammatory phenotype, but the mechanistic basis for this remains obscure. Here, we demonstrate that upon lipopolysaccharide (LPS) stimulation, macrophages shift from producing ATP by oxidative phosphorylation to glycolysis while also increasing succinate levels. We show that increased mitochondrial oxidation of succinate via succinatedehydrogenase (SDH)andanelevation of mitochondrial membrane potential combine to drive mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (ROS) production. RNA sequencing reveals that this combination induces a pro-inflammatory gene expression profile, while an inhibitor of succinate oxidation, dimethyl malonate (DMM), promotes an anti-inflammatory outcome. Blocking ROS production with rotenone by uncoupling mitochondria or by expressing the alternative oxidase (AOX) inhibits this inflammatory phenotype, with AOX protecting mice from LPS lethality. The metabolic alterations that occur upon activation of macrophages therefore repurpose mitochondria from ATP synthesis to ROS production in order to promote a pro-inflammatory state.

Dealing with Difficult Situations in the Classroom (Pitt UCTL)
Fri 9/29/2017 1:00PM - 2:30PM
Alumni Hall

Teaching isn’t always or even usually “easy,” and a wide array of challenging situations can arise in the course of a semester. You may encounter students who are disengaged, distressed, combative, or suffering from addiction. Perhaps you find that you are not connecting with your students, or that some students do not get along with one another. You may have students who frequently complain—justifiably or not—about various aspects of your teaching, such as grading. While you may not encounter all of these issues, it is best to be prepared beforehand with some strategies for addressing such challenges.
Objectives: By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to…
• Evaluate possible courses of action that can be taken in the difficult situations;
• Apply the University of Pittsburgh’s policies in dealing with difficult situations;
• Identify distress in students and respond accordingly.

End of semester teaching evaluations can be extremely helpful for implementing course improvements next semester, but mid-semester surveys can provide you with information upon which you can act now, so that you can make adjustments and improvements benefiting your current students. Mid-semester surveys can provide insights into student perceptions about which teaching strategies and methods are most effective, which aspects of your teaching are most helpful, and what you should keep doing…or consider doing differently. This workshop is designed to provide you with the technical information necessary to deploy an anonymous, online survey via CourseWeb, to analyze the responses you receive, to communicate those results to your students, and to formulate a strategy to make any necessary adjustments for the second half of the semester.By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to….
  • Design an anonymous, online mid-semester survey in CourseWeb.
  • Analyze survey responses to formulate a strategy for course adjustments.
  • Develop a plan for communicating survey results to students in a productive manner.

To mark his installation as the Philip Hallen Endowed Chair in Community Health and Social Justice, BCHS’s STEVEN ALBERT will revisit Rousseau’s 1754 "Discourse on the Origin and Foundations of Inequality Among Men," or “Second Discourse.” We have moved beyond early philosophical speculation to an emerging science of inequality, where the emergence of hierarchy can be explored experimentally. Health disparities can be viewed through this same lens and offer lessons on remediating inequality. 
Lecture also viewable via webcast. Reception to follow in the Public Health Commons.

Mon 10/16/2017 1:00PM - 2:30PM

Teaching isn’t always or even usually “easy,” and a wide array of challenging situations can arise in the course of a semester. You may encounter students who are disengaged, distressed, combative, or suffering from addiction. Perhaps you find that you are not connecting with your students, or that some students do not get along with one another. You may have students who frequently complain—justifiably or not—about various aspects of your teaching, such as grading. While you may not encounter all of these issues, it is best to be prepared beforehand with some strategies for addressing such challenges.
Objectives: By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to…
• Evaluate possible courses of action that can be taken in the difficult situations;
• Apply the University of Pittsburgh’s policies in dealing with difficult situations;
• Identify distress in students and respond accordingly.

Student engagement. Professional development. “Real-world” applications of class content. These are issues facing instructors across STEM, social science, and the humanities. Data shows that guided-inquiry learning can foster student motivation and enhance student understandings and competencies. The goal of guided-inquiry learning is to develop activities and assignments that help move students from “thinking” to “thinking and doing”. The primary objective of this approach is that students leave the classroom with skills, experiences, and concrete deliverables that contribute to their professional development – and career prospects.This workshop provides strategies on preparing students for life beyond the classroom through three types of process-based learning: labs, simulations, and case studies.Objectives:  By the end of this workshop, students will be able to…
  • Identify strategies for designing and implementing guided-inquiry learning activities
  • Compare and contrast labs, simulations, and case studies in the context of goal-oriented skills development and problem-based learning 
  • Address the use of guided-inquiry learning in “soft skills” development (e.g., communication, negotiation, collaboration, and decision-making)

Fri 10/20/2017 1:00PM - 2:30PM
Alumni Hall

Asking students to perform authentic, complex tasks can provoke higher-level learning, but how can we assess a complicated assignment when it has no “correct” answer?  Using rubrics can help you assess the seemingly-unassessable.  Rubrics also help clarify and communicate your expectations to your students and make for a simpler, faster, and fair grading process.  In this workshop, we’ll present different types of rubric, review rubric design best practices, and guide participants through the process of adapting or creating a real rubric to use in their courses. 

As a result of completing this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Define a rubric and identify its components
  • Recognize when it is appropriate to use a rubric
  • Describe different types of rubrics
  • Describe best practices in rubric creation
  • Explain how rubrics can be used as instructional tools
  • Begin to create a rubric which demonstrates alignment to a learning objective, clear performance criteria, and distinct levels of performance

Thu 10/26/2017 1:00PM - 2:30PM
Alumni Hall

Looking for a way to move beyond traditional slides or add new life to old presentations? Prezi is an easy-to-use presentation tool (as easy to use as PowerPoint) that provides a fresh, new, interactive way to present information to your students. Driven by Flash animation, Prezi allows you to organize course content in logical ways, while at the same time establishing multiple 
connections between multiple fields of knowledge. You can use Prezi to give a presentation in a predetermined “Path,” or explore instead, in response to student interactions. You can even have your students navigate, contribute to, or create a Prezi on their own. Prezi also easily integrates media. (To see sample Prezis, see: http://prezi.com/explore/.) This interactive workshop will familiarize you with the pedagogical and technical aspects of working with Prezi.

Objectives: By the end of this workshop, students will be able to…
• Identify some of the advantages of Prezi over traditional presentation tools, like PowerPoint.
• Use best practices in teaching with Prezi.
• Create their own new Prezi or convert an old PowerPoint presentation into a Prezi.
• Avoid common pitfalls in the creation of Prezis

The traditional exam has been much-maligned in higher education.  Educators bulk at the notion of “teaching to the test.”  But are tests, or teaching to tests, really bad things when the test questions are well-designed, challenging, and provoke critical thinking?

During this workshop, we’ll explore how to create better test questions and practice composing test questions which are both clear and rigorous.

As a result of completing this workshop, participants will be able to:

 

  • Recognize when it is appropriate to assess students using exams
  • Identify different types of objective test questions
  • Explain the pros and cons of different types of objective test questions in order to determine when each type might be appropriate to use
  • Explain how test results can be used as an instructional tool 
  • Begin to compose clear, appropriately challenging objective test questions which align with learning objectives and learning objective levels

Students value the timely feedback on performance they receive through the Grade Center. Blackboard can help you record and track your students’ grades more efficiently and can automatically grade certain kinds of student work. In this workshop, we’ll review the grade center and how it accepts grades from within and outside Blackboard. We’ll cover the Grade Center’s options for customizing grades to meet your learning objectives, and you’ll learn how to control what grades your students see and when they see them. This workshop meets in Alumni Hall, B26.

By the end of this course, you will be able to

  • Locate the Grade Center, create columns, enter grades, export grades, and upload grades from outside Blackboard;
  • Create a new rubric – or reference an existing one – to clarify learning objectives and grade assignments;
  • Create calculated columns that are customized to meet your learning objectives;
  • Use Smart Views, grade history and statistics to get a deeper picture of student progress and assessment quality.

Best Practices in Online Teaching – Faculty who teach online or hybrid classes want to know how to design and teach courses that are pedagogically effective. This workshop will summarize and synthesize research about the most effective practices in teaching learner-centered courses and point to CourseWeb tools that can help you implement engaging teaching strategies. Topics covered will include strategies and tools for planning sequenced assignments and activities, managing the course, and evaluation. The workshop will be of interest to faculty who teach online or who are interested in incorporating online components into their traditional courses. Bring your questions, ideas and experiences to share.

Objectives: By the end of this workshop, students will be able to…
• Organize materials for your course in CourseWeb
• Use CourseWeb to communicate with your students
• Design collaborative learning activities by selecting tools such as Groups, Discussion Board, Wiki, Blog or Journal
• Provide feedback to students with tools such as the rubric or quizzes

Mon 12/11/2017 11:00AM - 12:30PM

Putting together a syllabus for the first time can be a daunting task. In this workshop, we cover the basic components of a syllabus, as well as practical and stylistic "do's-and-don'ts" of syllabus construction. Participants will leave the workshop knowing how to construct their own syllabus so that course information is clearly presented to students, and so that students' confusion over course assignments and expectations is kept to a minimum.

Objectives: By the end of this workshop, students will be able to…
• Identify and produce necessary features of a syllabus
• Identify optional features of a syllabus 
• Construct a syllabus for a class

Improving Your Teaching Evaluations (Pitt UCTL)
Tue 12/12/2017 1:00PM - 2:30PM
Alumni Hall

Take a deep breath, brace yourself, maybe even pour a glass of wine — your student evaluations of teaching have just appeared in your inbox. Instructors’ responses to the end-of-semester arrival of student evaluations vary widely. For some, the possibility of harsh critiques produces anxiety, while others relish confirmation of a job well done. Some dismiss student evaluations as simply reflecting particular students’ idiosyncratic preferences. Others welcome the feedback to help them improve their teaching. Despite the diverse perceptions, research indicates that student evaluations are, in fact, generally more reliable than other methods of assessing teaching effectiveness, such as peer evaluation or self-ratings. Student evaluations of teaching, administered in most Pitt schools through the Office of Measurement and Evaluation of Teaching (OMET), can be effective sources for improved teaching. The question is how best to use them.
