Abstract

Looking to meet new people at Mason who are in a similar situation or working on similar projects as you?  Welcome to ITL and this table!  Join your fellow Mason instructors to informally discuss your experience with this table's instructor role or project. At the table, you will find desk copies of related resources (digital versions are available below), and an experienced Mason colleague who has experience and strategies related to this topic.  Not sure what to talk about?  Here are some conversation starters:
  • Share a little about yourselves: 

    • Department

    • Years at Mason

    • Courses you are teaching

    • What excites you about teaching?

  • What brought you to this table?

  • What would you most like to find out about your students, about how they work or learn or respond, about what they hope for or worry about?

  • What kinds of information have you already gathered about your students’ learning, either formally through structured research or informally through surveys or conversations?

  • What sorts of learning challenges or learning opportunities do your students face that you think could also show up in other courses they’re taking, in or beyond your program/department?

  • What sorts of teaching challenges or projects would you like to work on most in the upcoming months?

Have an example or resource to share?  Submit through this link and we'll upload it after the conference: http://library.gmu.edu/publishing/submit Still have questions?  Leave a post it note on the table sign at the end of the Share-a-thon or email your questions to stearns@gmu.edu   ADDITIONAL RESOURCES:
