Summer 2021 Professional Development Opportunities

HyFlex Workshop

The HyFlex Workshop will guide instructors through the course design and pedagogy of teaching in the HyFlex Model. It is divided into two parts. Part A is held virtually and will focus on the pedagogy of teaching students Face-to-Face in the classroom, teaching students synchronously through web-conferencing, and asynchronously by recording the classroom sessions. Part B is held in a HyFlex classroom at the Downtown campus and will focus on using the technology in the HyFlex classroom and applying the concepts learned in Part A in a simulated HyFlex classroom setting. Each part is approximately 4 hours long based on the number of participants. Prerequisites: Instructors are expected to have a working knowledge of the Blackboard Learning Management System and Blackboard Collaborate prior to taking this course.

Attendance in both A & B sessions qualifies participants for 10 FQAS hours. To sign up (space is limited) or if you have any questions, please contact John Futterer at futterja@matc.edu

21st Century Level 3 Course Design Cohort 

The 21st Century Level 3 Summer Cohort is a series of four, one-hour workshops in which Faculty will learn about the Level 3 criteria reflective of Quality Matters standards. This series will be held virtually and hosted by CTE Faculty Development Coaches and Instructional Designer.  The workshops will be interactive and participants will spend some time applying Level 3 standards to their own course(s) (no matter the modality) during the sessions and in-between sessions (approximately six hours). This will prepare participants to submit a course for MATC Peer-Review, which is the final requirement to earn the 21st Century Level 3 Student-Centered Course Design badge. Some topics participants will learn and apply are: 

  • How to make your course student-centered.

  • How to align course competencies and learning objectives with assessments, learning activities and materials.

  • Foundations of Universal Design for Learning and how to make your course accessible to learners.

Attendance in all four virtual workshops along with submission of a course for peer-review qualifies participants for 10 FQAS hours. Prerequisites: Current 21st Century Level 1 status required, and Level 2 status recommended. To sign up or if you have any questions, please contact John Futterer at futterja@matc.edu

Building an Equitable Syllabus Faculty Learning Community

Would you like to earn FQAS hours developing an equity-minded syllabus? Then join us this summer for the “Building an Equitable Syllabus” Faculty Learning Community (FLC)!

A faculty learning community is an intentional community of educators gathering to address an educational issue of concern.  More than a book club or a discussion group, faculty learning communities use the scholarship of teaching and learning to address the needs of either a faculty cohort or an education-related topic.  Faculty learning communities commit to both an outcome and an assessment and bring with them the possibility of larger institutional change.

The “Building an Equitable Syllabus” FLC will support faculty who are looking for ways to promote equity in the classroom. Using From Equity Talk to Equity Walk, a collection of research on equitable teaching practices from the Association of American Colleges and Universities and the USC’s Center for Urban Education, and CUE’s, “Syllabus Review Guide for Equity-Minded Practice” participants in this FLC will examine ways to build a more equitable classroom by building equity into their syllabus.

Participants who complete this Faculty Learning Community can earn 20 hours towards Teaching Excellence & Student Success in FQAS.

This virtual, synchronous course will meet weekly between the weeks of  June 1 and July 15, with a week off for the July 4th holiday.  Each session will last approximately 2 hours. Dates to be determined by consensus during the first week.

If you are interested in participating, please contact co-leaders, Talonda Lipsey-Brown at lipseybt@matc.edu or Susan Nusser at nussers@matc.edu prior to May 25th.
