“Overcoming Student Learning Bottlenecks: Decode the Critical Thinking of Your Discipline”
By Joan Middendorf and Leah Shopkow (Stylus, December 2017)

Faculty may be experts in the content of a course in a discipline, but students are often novices. Students will therefore encounter bottlenecks in learning where they get stuck and tend to fall behind. This book suggests a method of decoding the disciplines to uncover the mental tasks that students need to navigate. The method further suggests modeling that process, providing opportunities for practice and feedback, assessing learning, and revising the course in light of this knowledge. The authors invite those who try this method to share their findings with others through a scholarship of teaching and learning project. There is also a live webinar with the author on Friday February 23 at 3pm. Please sign up by Feb 8 for a free book.

Interest in Academic Innovation Team on Augmented and Virtual Reality With Bernard Bull

Meeting dates: Thursdays (Feb 22, March 22, April 19, June 21, July 19)
2:30 to 4:00pm Central – (CUW-In R006)
3:30 to 5:00pm Eastern – (CUAA-Krieger 103)

During this semester, we are launching the first of what we hope to be several future academic innovation teams. An academic innovation team is a group of faculty and academic staff who gather monthly to focus upon a specific academic innovation, with the ultimate goal of enhancing teaching or pursuing a scholarly project.

Step 1 Learning
This first team will focus upon augmented and virtual reality in the higher education. In our first meetings, we will learn about one another’s goals and interest in this area, and focus upon learning about augmented and virtual reality in education through research articles, demonstrations, guest presenters, and experimenting with some of the technologies.

Step 2 Applying Your Learning
After building a foundation, members of the academic innovation team will choose an individual or group project that seeks to apply augmented and/or virtual reality to a specific lesson, course, or content area. Or, others may choose to engage in a formal scholarly project related to enhancing student learning through augmented and/or virtual reality.

Critical Conversations in Curriculum: Foundational Questions

Tuesday February 27, 3:00 – 4:30 pm in the Luptak Terrace Room

Between February and July, Bernard Bull will be hosting a monthly event to explore critical conversations in curriculum. This is an opportunity for faculty and academic staff to examine and discuss substantive issues about curriculum. This is not about curriculum as an exercise in compliance. In February, we begin with a shared discussion on foundational questions for the series: What is curriculum? What are dominant viewpoints and philosophies about curriculum in higher education? Is there such a thing as a distinctly Christian and/or Lutheran curriculum? How are beliefs and values manifest in a curriculum, and What are the implications for living out Concordia’s distinct mission? Beverages and snacks will be provided.

Supporting Our Students: Recognizing Student Concerns & Next Steps (Lunch n’ Learn)

With Rachel Pickett, PhD, and Elizabeth Polzin, MA
Wednesday February 28, 12:00-1:00 pm in the Lake Shore Room

In recent years, college campuses have seen an increase in the amount of students dealing with mental illnesses, stressors and other concerns. Faculty are not expected to act as counselors or solve students’ personal problems; but rather demonstrate Christian concern and refer students to the appropriate services. This Lunch n Learn will provide faculty information on how to recognize various student concerns, review active listening tools, as well as offer resources for faculty and students in navigating these concerns. The main focus of the program will be on discussion of case studies and practicing skills faculty can use in their interactions with students. Counseling center staff, along with the presenters, will provide insight and guidance. Free lunch in the cafeteria for those who register in advance.

Concordia Faculty Seminar: Development of A Personalized Medical Device for Drug Dosing and Selection with Dr. Joseph McGraw; Pharm. D., M.P.H., Ph.D, Associate Professor

Thursday March 8, 12:15-1:00 pm in the Lake Shore Room

Genotyping approaches to personalized medicine do not account for environmental factors. We have developed a personalized medical diagnostic that identifies an individuals’ hepatic metabolic phenotype. Metabolic phenotyping accounts for environmental and health factors while informing individualized drug dose and selection.

Concordia Faculty Seminar: Cultural Competence Education – Pedagogical Strategies and Clinical Application Approaches with Dr. Katherine Liesener

Monday March 26, 12:15 – 1:00 pm in the Lake Shore Room

In order to provide culturally competent health care and reduce health disparities, health care providers must be responsive and sensitive to all cultural and sociocultural differences present in the population. However, educators and practitioners often underestimate the complexity of culturally competent health care by assuming that it applies to race and ethnic differences only. This session will provide the participants with a fresh, holistic, multi-faceted approach to culturally competent health care, which is required in order to minimize stereotypes and assumptions, and maximize patient outcomes.

Critical Conversations in Curriculum – Truth, Beauty, Goodness and Unity

Tuesday March 27, 3:00 – 4:30 pm in the Luptak Terrace Room

Between February and July, Bernard Bull is hosting a monthly conversation for faculty and staff to discuss substantive issues of curriculum. During this second critical conversation in curriculum, we will use President Ferry’s inaugural speech as a launch pad to discuss the role of truth, beauty, goodness, and unity throughout the University. How do these connect to our mission of helping students develop in mind, body, and spirit? How do these apply across the curriculum? What does it look like to have a University-wide curriculum that is shaped and informed by celebrating and cultivating a value for truth, beauty, goodness, and unity? Beverages and snacks will be provided. Mark your calendar for future Tuesdays: April 24, May 22, June 19 and July 24, all 3:00 to 4:30pm
