Student Remarks that Make You Wince—And The Learning Opportunities They Present
Craig Miller (School of Computing)
"I'm sorry I wasn't at the first class. Did I miss anything important?" Most every instructor gets such remarks from students, but what are effective responses to them? In this session, we will interactively construct responses by first adopting the student's point of view, striving to identify student experiences that would make remarks like these perfectly understandable. Drawing upon a few "favorites" shared by fellow instructors, we will consider each by first acknowledging what it is about the remark that makes us wince. We will then construct effective responses that make contact with the student's point of view. 

Collaboration in the Classroom: Opportunities for Community Building through a Service-Learning Lens
Jen Finstrom (College of Liberal Arts and Social Science)
Service learning appears in many disciplines across the university and is integrated with academic content and objectives in a given course. Working with Community-based Service Learning (CbSL) to plan a course with the end goal of working with a community partner rather than for a community partner has also led to outcomes in the classroom of greater student agency, engagement, and sense of community. A variety of assignments will be used to view how class planning through a service-learning lens can lead to these outcomes across disciplines, even for the non-CbSL classroom.
