Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)

Category: Personal Effectiveness at Work Department: Student Life - Counseling & Testing Center
Description:

ASIST is a two-day, two-trainer, workshop designed for members of all caregiving groups. Family, friends, and other community members may be the first to talk with a person at risk, but have little or no training. ASIST can also provide those in formal helping roles with professional development to ensure that they are prepared to provide suicide first aid help as part of the care they provide.

The emphasis is on teaching suicide first-aid to help a person at risk stay safe and seek further help as needed. Participants explore their own attitudes regarding suicide, learn to use a suicide intervention model to identify persons with thoughts of suicide, seek a shared understanding of reasons for dying and living, develop a safeplan based upon a review of risk, be prepared to do follow-up, and become involved in suicide-safer community networks. The learning process is based on adult learning principles and highly participatory. Graduated skills development occurs through mini-lectures, facilitated discussions, group simulations, and role plays.

Black Girl in Suburbia Screening and Conversation about Inclusive Teaching

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

After a screening of her award-winning documentary Black Girl in Suburbia, Melissa Lowery joins a panel of UO undergraduate students to discuss what inclusive teaching means at predominantly white institutions—from K-12 schools to college classrooms. What classroom experiences have supported— or undermined—a sense of belonging and academic achievement for the students of color on our panel? How do faculty create conditions in which it is possible for students to learn from one another across differences and allow for shifts in students’ perspectives?  

This teaching conversation concludes a two-day symposium focused on Lowery’s 55-minute documentary film, which explores the experience of black women who grew up in predominantly white communities around Oregon. Join us for this special chance to discuss the racial dynamics that shape academic environments, a discussion that will center the voices and experiences of students of color in a conversation about teaching practice.

Crucial Accountability

Category: Communication Skills Department: HR/Employee and Labor Relations
Description:

A crucial accountability conversation is a particular type of crucial conversation that focuses on holding people accountable.  In this workshop we will learn a highly effective process for strengthening accountability by identifying and addressing failed promises, performance gaps, missed expectations, and bad behavior.  The approach is kind, direct, and maximizes learning.  It can be used to address issues with someone you supervise or someone who supervises you; with team members, family members, or anyone else who has broken a promise, missed an expectation or simply behaved badly.  

You do NOT need to complete the Crucial Conversations workshop to take Crucial Accountability.  This is a standalone workshop.  

This is a four-part series.  Each session builds on previous material so attendance is mandatory for all sessions.

Session 1: Getting Unstuck; Start with Heart
Session 2: Master My Stories; Describe the Gap
Session 3: Make it Safe; Diagnose
Session 4: Make it Easy and Motivating; Move to Action

Additional Information:

 Through sponsorship of the Vice President for Finance and Administration, Human Resources and Professional Development, we are able to offer registration for this course to University of Oregon employees at a rate of $97.50/person, a fraction of what the cost would be otherwise.  With that registration fee you will receive instruction and coaching, a toolkit to use at the workshop and to reference when you return to your work, a set of audio CDs, and a network of colleagues to tap into when dealing with workplace issues. The Professional Development Opportunity Fund may be a resource available to you in covering the fee for this course.

You will have an opportunity to include an index number when registering that we will charge for the registration fee. A JV will be sent by the Human Resources office three business days prior to the first session.  Cancellations will not be accepted after the JV has been sent.  The index you provided will be charged the registration fee if you do not cancel three business days prior to the first session.  These workshops are very popular and it is difficult to transition people in at the last minute.  Please contact Ashley Malan at amalan@uoregon.edu or 6-2955 if you are no longer able to attend.

Delegation and Empowerment

Category: Leadership, Management, Supervision Department: HR/Professional Development
Description:

Leadership requires the ability to determine levels of readiness in delegating responsibility AND authority.  When done well, the responsibility matches both the supervisor’s readiness to “let go”, and the receiver’s readiness to “step up” to demonstrate greater initiative and take healthy risks.  Using research findings from a model for situational leadership, we will examine a simple tool to use in delegating appropriately and effectively to achieve optimal outcomes, both in productivity and in enhancing confidence and competence in your workforce.

Description:

Emotional intelligence… the art of managing emotions, yours AND your response to those you work with, as well as recognizing techniques to help others manage their emotions.  Emotions in the workplace are most obvious in how we deal with stress, how we handle conflict, what we do with our anger, and whether we gauge the impact of our words BEFORE saying them.  This workshop will help participants to recognize the power of emotions and to practice techniques to optimize emotions in the workplace.


As a result of this workshop participants will be able to:
• Identify the factors of Emotional Intelligence (EI)
• Determine your EI strengths and areas of challenge

Emotional Intelligence II: Managing Different Behaviors

Category: Communication Skills Department: HR/Professional Development
Description:

Navigating different behaviors in the workplace…  hummm!:)  

Different behaviors are often seen as difficult even though most difficult behavior is accidental, unconscious, stemming from how we communicate and where we focus our attention. Left unchecked, though, different behavior has the potential to breed misunderstandings, false assumptions, and unnecessary frustration. So, what can we do when it affects us? 

Join others for this workshop to identify and diagnose the four basic behavioral styles people use in the workplace and how to manage emotions so that you can outsmart unnecessary frustrations.  

Additional Information: This course was formerly titled:  Dealing With "Difficult" Behavior...Outsmarting the Situation.

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, brainstorm ways this teaching could work in other contexts, and learn how CAS plans to support similar deconstructions of seeming divisions between “content” and “language” courses. 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

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.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction is the most widely studied and accepted program of its kind.  Through this program participants are taught, over the course of 8 weeks, how to harness their own innate abilities to diminish stress and pain, and to improve overall physical and mental health.  It was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD in 1979, and is used in hundreds of schools, hospitals, and other institutional facilities worldwide.  Hundreds of research studies and clinical trials have demonstrated the effectiveness of Mindfulness Stress Reduction.

Nationwide, MBSR courses range in cost from $400 to $600.

Question Storming: The Role of Academic Residential Communities and the Future of the Residential University

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

This workshop invites participants to explore the future of teaching and learning within the UO’s residential campus with a particular focus on the emerging Academic Residential Community (ARC) model.  Inspired by Warren Berger's book, A More Beautiful Question: The Power of Inquiry to Spark Breakthrough Ideas, and the work of the Right Question Institute, this highly interactive and co-created session will question storm the most important ideas and questions—rather than brain storm the most plausible solutions and answers—for the challenges and opportunities of undergraduate education within a residential research university. We hope to unearth the most important questions that need to be asked as we look to UO's future in 5, 10, 20 years. 

 

The institution’s adoption of a mandatory live-on policy beginning in fall 2017 signals a recognition  of the academic benefits of a residential campus, and ARCs represent a signature student experience that align with President Michael Schill’s “Oregon Commitment to Student Access and Success.”  President Schill has identified the delivery “of a rich and diverse experience for students both inside and outside the classroom” as one of his three central objectives, and affirmed the institution’s commitment “to expanding our successful student engagement programs, like Academic Residential Communities and First-Year Interest Groups.”

 

ARCs remain a nascent idea the UO in contrast to many of our AAU comparators with longstanding and established living learning programs.  The UO ARC Council will soon enter its third year charged with thinking broadly about how to foster strategic interdisciplinary and cross-college partnerships to ensure ARCs engage students in pedagogically innovative and thematically articulated curricular pathways through general education requirements, pre-professional courses, and minor/major curriculum. In fall 2017 a constellation of 19 ARCs housed across eight residence halls will admit a projected 1100 incoming students encompassing partnerships with all eight academic colleges, over 20 majors, and several academic support units (e.g. CMAE, OAA, Dean of Students). Hence, this workshop occurs at a formative moment for this conversation.

Lunch will be served

 

Dr. Greg Merritt received his PhD at Michigan State University in the Higher Adult and Lifelong Program with a focus on teaching and learning. He spent almost 30 years as a practitioner in University Housing at both Michigan State and the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor with an emphasis in the benefits of living/learning communities.  His first role at U of M, Ann Arbor was with the Center for Research on Teaching and Learning where he focused on improving faculty and graduate student instructor teaching.  

 

As the founding advisor of the First-Gen Students@Michigan student group at U of M, he also has seen the benefits of residential learning communities to enhance and improve outcomes with students with the least agency on our campuses.

Roundtable Discussion: Working with Supervising Faculty and Instructors of Record as a Graduate Student Teacher

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

TEP invites graduate students who are working with supervising faculty to join a collaborative discussion about the complexities of teaching as part of a team. How does one work within the context and goals of the larger course and with a faculty mentor, at times inhabiting an intermediary role between student and professor? We’ll consider how this teaching can support graduate students’ own academic professionalization, how to establish mutual expectations, and how to access mentorship and support. By joining the discussion, you will hear from other UO graduate students who can share experiences and advice. TEP plans to use insights from this session to lead a similar conversation for faculty in Fall in the hopes of supporting positive, effective teaching teams.
