Empowering Language Learners: A Critical Pedagogy across the Curriculum

Category: Teaching Engagement Department: Academic Affairs - Teaching Engagement Program
Description:

How does working with materials in languages other than English enliven the possibilities of any course and introduce language learning in highly motivating and contextualized ways? Can proficiency in another language—say, by heritage speakers, international students, or those just fulfilling the language requirement—be a deeply empowering asset for students across the disciplines at UO?
 
In this interactive session, we’ll learn about the CAS Renaissance award winning-work of Robert Davis and Claudia Holguin (Romance Languages) and Julie Weise (History) to bring Spanish-language materials into courses in which the primary language of instruction is English—elevating the research-based aspect of these courses and drawing students into the powerful, human stories of their course subjects through an encounter with Spanish-language vernacular texts and their authors. They have successfully employed this critical language pedagogy with students with as little as one year of college Spanish, or who emerged from several years of high school Spanish erroneously believing, “I don’t remember anything.”
 
We’ll practice a real activity our presenters use in class and brainstorm ways this teaching could work in other contexts. Moreover, we’ll consider how a more multilingual relationship to instruction at UO energizes the core liberal arts mission of the university at a time when global citizenship is being undermined as a value in U.S. public discourse and student participation in language study in declining at American colleges and universities.
 
Our presenters want you to know that language “mastery" isn’t a prerequisite for embarking on this exciting teaching. If your research includes materials in languages other than English you are a good candidate for this workshop. 
 
Presenters:
Robert Davis, Professor of Spanish, director of language instruction in Romance Languages
Claudia Holguin, assistant professor of Spanish, Director of the Spanish Heritage Language Program
Julie Weise, associate professor of history

GTI Microteaching

Category: Teaching Engagement Department: Academic Affairs - Teaching Engagement Program
Description:

Microteaching provides graduate students enrolled in TEP's Graduate Teaching Initiative (GTI) an opportunity to pilot a new lesson or teaching technique in front of 2-3 peers and a member of TEP. These peers will give you feedback on your teaching and help you reflect on how to improve or implement the particular lesson. You will then switch roles with one of the peers and observe and provide feedback to your peers.

Microteaching sessions are opportunities for experimentation and collaborative reflection; they are not meant to be formal, evaluative spaces of your worth as a teacher or your peer’s worth. Think of microteaching as a “drill” to hone your skills or a “rehearsal” for more important performances in actual classrooms. The whole point is to try something new in a space where “success” and “failure” are equally useful and rewarding. If, for example, you demo an exercise that your peers find confusing, or downright unclear, this allows you space to explore potential improvements before you actually try it out on a class full of undergraduate students.

Prerequisite:

To register for a microteaching session, you must be a graduate student enrolled in TEP's Graduate Teaching Initiative (GTI).

Have you ever had a conversation where you felt like you were talking to yourself?  Have you ever thought to yourself “I wish people would just listen?”  Or, when you are talking to someone else, you see their eyes glaze over and wonder, “What just happened?”  If any of these instances have happened to you, you may have experienced the ‘huh’ factor in listening skills. Take a minute to join others to learn about how we listen, what we listen for, and how you can take a more active role in assuring messages sent are clearly understood and interpreted.  As a result of this interactive workshop you will be able to:
• Identify characteristics of effective listeners
• Recognize different listening preferences
• Identify styles of listening
• Recognize challenges to effective listening in groups

Metacognition

Category: Teaching Engagement Department: Academic Affairs - Teaching Engagement Program
Description:

Metacognition, simply, is “thinking about one’s own thinking” (Cooper & Sandi-Urena 2009). Research shows that students who engage in metacognitive exercises perform better on exams, written assignments, and class discussions. Most importantly, thinking metacognitively is important for students to gain independence and agency as thinkers. How then can we foster students’ ability to be metacognitive and to reflect on how and why they learn? After participating in this workshop, you will be able to design activities and assignments that enhance students’ metacognitive skills and integrate these activities into your courses.
