This workshop continues where the keynote session left off and invites faculty to assess the extent to which the hallmarks of HIPs are enacted and access is expanded. We will also discuss opportunities for partnering with student affairs and the co-curriculum for additional educational benefit, and to consider the total learning environment in the intentional design of engaging pedagogies.

We will also address ways to engage students when your strategies appear to be less effective than desired.

2-3pm Quality Online Instruction: An Introduction to the QOLT Rubric Online education is an ever expanding endeavor in higher education.  However, many people question the quality of online degree programs and courses.  To address this issue the California State University has taken the initiative to ensure quality of its online courses throughout the system. Different campuses have been adopting different quality assurance programs. CSU, Chico has adopted the Quality Online Learning and Teaching (QOLT) rubric to aid course design and evaluation. This session will introduce participant to the QOLT rubric and the evaluation process. Ben Seipel (EDUC) Colusa Hall 100A

Bringing Your Colleagues’ Knowledge to Your Classroom: “Virtual” Visiting Professors In the Fall of 2012 I was given a CELT grant to 1) edit a series of video-taped interviews that I had conducted with Chico State students and professors, 2) analyze the students’ perception of the videos and 3) gauge the students’ responses to the videos. This presentation will demonstrate how these videos were created and what the students thought of them. Denise Minor (ILLC) Colusa Hall 100B
