2013-2014 AEA Brown Bag Time-Out for Lunch Series
The Time-Out for Lunch Workshops are designed to empower educators as Agents of Transformative Learning. Faculty Associates work with AEA staff to develop and deliver individual and small group faculty/professional staff development workshops covering issues related to teaching, learning, and assessment. Associates may also facilitate work groups on focused topics.
In previous years, these workshops have included: the Collaborative Learning, Blended Learning, Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, Student Reflections and Community Engagement, Assessment Certification Workshops, Grading Rubrics and other forms of Assessment.
The Time-Out for Lunch Workshops are a 60-90 minute session designed to allow in-depth coverage of a topic along with discussion among the facilitator and the participants. Drinks and dessert will be provided to include with your lunch. Attendees are encouraged to come prepared with their questions and ideas for sharing.
Fall Professional Development Programming Opportunities
Interpersonal Trust: Across Professions and in Our Classrooms

The concept of interpersonal trust holds great importance across many disciplines. The work of doctors, attorneys, social workers, religious leaders, mediators and many others is greatly facilitated by their counterparts placing trust in them. This importance notwithstanding, trust is rarely addressed directly in the teaching of various disciplines. This workshop will address the questions of what professionals need to learn about trust, and how this might best be taught. Turning that same lens inwards, participants will explore the roles played by trust in the classroom, discussing how we, as members of the teaching profession, can improve our teaching by applying a trust-lens to interactions in the classroom environment.
What's in a Name? Scholarly Teaching and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
Facilitator: Kathy Flecky, OTD, OTR/L, Department of Occupational Therapy, SPAHP Office of Interprofessional Scholarship, Service and Education (OISSE)
(Wednesday, October 23, 11:30-1:00; Skutt SC Room 105)
Critical reflection and deliberation on the commonalities and differences between scholarly teaching and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) provide an opportunity to enhance our teaching effectiveness and optimize student learning. This workshop will challenge you to conceptualize scholarly teaching and SoTL in novel ways and provide resources and strategies to reflect and become deliberate in your teaching, student learning, and scholarship.
Quantitative Data Collection and Analysis
Facilitator: Brian Kokensparger, Journalism, Media and Computing
This series of two workshops will provide hands-on experience for users in quantitative data collection and analysis to interpret results. It is created for faculty and staff members who have little or no experience in quantitative analysis or those skilled in the analysis who want to brush up on their skills.
Workshop 1: Survey Design, Implementation and Management
(Wednesday, October 30, 11:30-1:00; HCCA Room 207)
This workshop will provide an introduction to survey theory and design. Bring your specifications (what you want to explore) and we will turn those specifications into survey questions using BlueQ.
Workshop 2: Quantitative Analysis
(Wednesday, November 20, 11:30-1:00; HCCA Room 207)
This workshop will provide an introduction to quantitative analysis techniques. Bring your survey results and we will use the R statistical software package (freely available on the Internet) to analyze and interpret those results. Don't have survey results? That's okay, we'll provide results for you to use during this hands-on session.
