This policy letter, prepared for the Colorado State Board of Community Colleges and Occupational Education and submitted in January 2018 reports on the occupational conditions of adjunct faculty in the Colorado Community College System.

The letter advances a range of practical policy reforms for the consideration of Board that, if adopted would improve current working conditions for adjunct faculty and strengthen quality of community college instruction in Colorado.

Re-Imagining The One-Shot: The Case For Transformational Teaching, Cinthya Ippoliti Jan 2018

Re-Imagining The One-Shot: The Case For Transformational Teaching, Cinthya Ippoliti

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, Innovative Pedagogy

Coined by Jack Mezirow, and translated for classroom application by George Slavich and Philip Zimbardo (2012), transformational teaching seeks to increase student “mastery of key course concepts while transforming their learning-related attitudes, values, beliefs, and skills”. The Framework for Information Literacy has caused a widespread shift in how we approach instruction in librarianship as students explore newfound roles as information creators, disseminators, and evaluators. But this is only one of many stops along a journey of self-realization and discovery that they make throughout the duration of a course. Information literacy and transformational teaching share parallel goals and pedagogical methodologies which ...


Adapting The Kolb Model For Authentic Instructional Design Projects: The 4-C Framework, Carrie Lewis Miller, John Grooms Jan 2018

Adapting The Kolb Model For Authentic Instructional Design Projects: The 4-C Framework, Carrie Lewis Miller, John Grooms

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, Innovative Pedagogy

Background: Authentic, real-world projects are the key to providing opportunities for instructional design graduate students to increase the skills they will need once they enter the job market. Purpose: While experiential learning experiences can enhance skill transfer and allow students to network and create artifacts that can be added to a design portfolio, working with student design teams requires additional communication and support on the part of the client. Approach: Building on the Kolb Model of Experiential Learning and the Stout-Rostron model, a 4-C Framework was developed to help create more effective experiential learning experiences for instructional design students. Implications ...

Learning Analytics: Translating Data Into “Just-In-Time” Interventions, Pauline Salim Muljana, Greg Placencia

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, Innovative Pedagogy

Despite the burgeoning studies on student attrition and retention, many institutions continue to deal with related issues, including D, F, and W grades rates. The emerging and rapidly developing Learning Analytics (LA) field shows great potential for improving learning outcomes by monitoring and analyzing student performance to allow instructors to recommend specific interventions based on key performance indicators. Unfortunately, higher education has been slow to implement it. We, therefore, provide the rationale and benefits of increased LA integration into courses and curriculum. We further identify and suggest ready-to-implement best practices, as well as tools available in Learning Management Systems (LMSs ...


Google Forms In Library Instruction: Creating An Active Learning Space And Communicating With Students, Elena Rodriguez Jan 2018

Google Forms In Library Instruction: Creating An Active Learning Space And Communicating With Students, Elena Rodriguez

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, Innovative Pedagogy

The many programs offered through Google’s G Suite for Education have steadily found their footing across the varied fields of librarianship, including instruction. One such program that has potential in encouraging and developing information literacy skills in undergraduate students is Google Forms. From the observation of a Google Form activity used in four sections of a 100-level History course, utilizing Forms during one-shot instruction can create active learning experiences, be a valuable tool in aiding the continuation of a lesson after a completed one-shot, and can play an important role for the librarian when assessing if learning outcomes have ...

Emancipatory Learning, Open Educational Resources, Open Education, And Digital Critical Participatory Action Research, Jason M. Leggett, Jay Wen, Anthony Chatman

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, Innovative Pedagogy

Given that we must prepare students for the future workforce today how can we use the power of Open Educational Resources (OERs) and Digital Social Science research to improve student learning and help students develop technical skills needed for the high-tech workforce? In this article, we use transformative learning theory (Mezirow, 1978) and Digital + Critical Participatory Action Research (D+CPAR) to analyze the effectiveness of integrating OERs into a course and reflect on how we used OERs to support student learning and make civic engagement more equitable at an urban community college. In a criminal justice course analyzing the legal ...
