How Grading Profiles and Self-Assessment Help Students Master Learning Outcomes and Evaluate the Quality of Their Learning and Intellectual Development
How Grading Profiles and Self-Assessment Help Students Master Learning Outcomes and Evaluate the Quality of Their Learning and Intellectual Development
Jessica King (College of Computing and Digital Media)
Imagine if your students felt they had control over their grades through a clear understanding of skill development and evaluation from day one? This interactive presentation centers on designing and implementing grade profiles and personal, intellectual narratives to give students ownership of their learning. Sample grade profiles, grade defenses, and interviews with students who have been through the process will highlight the power of a student-owned education.

It Takes More Than a Major: Employer Priorities for College and Student Success
It Takes More Than a Major: Employer Priorities for College and Student Success
Karyn McCoy and Lynne Copp (Career Center)
The changing nature of work and the focus on the value of a degree impact how colleges prepare students for life after DePaul. In a national survey of business and non-profit leaders, nearly all surveyed said they prefer hiring graduates with skills that enable them to contribute to innovation. With no adjustment to curricular content or course structure, DePaul can help build student awareness of the transferable skills gained inside and outside the classroom. This experiential workshop provides a platform for helping students identify and articulate the practical skills they have learned at DePaul, that are crucial to post-graduate success.

Persisting in Presence: Rhetorical Listening for Conversation
Persisting in Presence: Rhetorical Listening for Conversation
Hannah Lee (Writing, Rhetoric & Discourse)
In our societal communications of immediate and individual rhetorical acts, facilitating productive conversation between different subject positions continues to pose a teaching challenge. This workshop seeks to prompt reflection on our own biases and cultural logics, so that we might develop pedagogical approaches to facilitate meaningful conversation. To equip ourselves with strategies for a lexicon of sharing our differences and meanings with others, we turn to Krista Ratcliffe's pedagogy of rhetorical listening and Appiah's notion of conversation.

My Way or the Highway: Do Instructor’s Learning Preferences Affect Student Performance?
My Way or the Highway: Do Instructor’s Learning Preferences Affect Student Performance?
Sebastien Mary and Petar Petrovski (College of Business)

We examine whether the extent to which student’s learning preferences deviate from the instructor’s learning preferences across visual, aural, reading/writing, kinesthetic modalities affects student performance using data from an introductory class in economics. We contextualize this research experiment into a practical workshop where participants will learn how to recognize student learning patterns and how to enrich their teaching strategies to make student learning more effective.
