Tidbits to Savor: Highlights from Past, Present, and Future Book Reads
Major concepts and powerful teaching ideas from FCTE book reads will be shared. You do not need to have read the books to gain meaningful tidbits in this session! From concepts of interleaving to student metacognition, we will spend the session with the best parts from each book. In addition, the second half of the morning will be devoted to applying the concepts to your classes. Here are the books to be savored: Teach Students How to Learn (S. McGuire), Small Teaching (J. Lang), What the Best College Teachers Do (K. Bain), Make It Stick (Brown, Roediger, McDaniel), Teaching Naked (J. Bowen), and Dynamic Lecturing (T. Zakrajsek).

Don’t Leave it to Chance: Increasing Student Success in Statistics

Adding to Your Toolkit: Practical Strategies for Assessing Student Learning in Classes and Programs
Whether you are an instructor focused on classroom learning or a chair trying to understand student progress through a program, this session will help you move from understanding the “what” and “why” of assessment to designing and applying plans and tools for “how” assessment gets done. The first half of the session will introduce strategies for classroom assessment, and the second half will be used to guide your development of specific tools or plans you can put to use for the coming semester and beyond.
