TBL was originally developed nearly 40 years ago by a professor of organizational psychology to maximize the power of teams, and carefully designed to avoid the pitfalls of small group learning. TBL provides students with a more intimate, small class feel even in large theater-style classrooms with fixed seats. TBL teachers report high levels of student attendance, preparation, participation and critical thinking. TBL students report enjoying class and being more motivated and actively engaged. Collaboration in teams builds student problem-solving skills that are valued by employers in real-life workplace environments. Just like on the job, participants are expected to be responsible and prepared as individuals and then bring their best efforts into group activities.

Description:

This faculty workshop includes pre-workshop online learning modules and an interactive face-to-face workshop focused on creating an inclusive classroom environment.


Today's university classrooms are more diverse than in the past. With this diversity of students comes the need to ensure the learning environments associated with courses are inclusive and designed to support all students. This faculty workshop includes pre-workshop online learning modules and an interactive face-to-face workshop focused on creating an inclusive classroom environment.

Overall Workshop Objectives
After participating in the pre-workshop learning modules and the face-to-face program, faculty and staff will:
1. Identify discipline-based and course specific improvements to foster inclusive excellence in the classroom.
2. Develop an individual action plan for promoting inclusion in the classroom.
3. Become familiar with the campus resources and programs that support diversity and inclusion.

About the Pre-workshop Learning Modules
By engaging in the pre-workshop learning modules, participants will:
1. Explore what teaching inclusively is and why it is important at Iowa State University.
2. Identify their own attitudes towards inclusion, acknowledge how it impacts teaching, and develop strategies to be more inclusive.
3. Enhance self-awareness and instructional skills that may contribute to our inclusive campus environment.
Modules will be available at least one week prior to the workshop and will be instrumental to our face-to-face program; therefore, we ask that you complete the modules prior to the event.

Money for Life

Barb Wollan, Field Specialist III, Human Sciences Extension and Outreach

Money isn’t an end in itself; rather, it is a means to an end, that of having the kind of life you want. More money doesn’t necessarily mean a better life either. It’s what you do with your money that counts. In this workshop, you will consider your goals, explore financial security, and then begin examining your money choices to see how they match up with what’s important to you. The goal is to equip you to put your money where it will best improve your life, in both the short-term and the long-term.
