January 30: Lightning in a Bottle: Transformative Classroom Management (Workshop):

Location: Rose Library room 3311; a light lunch will be provided.

Register Here


Faculty whose pedagogy includes highly contextualized, problem-solving exercises talk about ‘catching lightning in a bottle’ when content and student engagement align to produce significant learning experiences.  These incidents don’t happen by chance: they are the result of good classroom management skills by instructors who take the role of mediator, skillfully connecting student-based inquiry with course goals through transformative teaching.  This workshop introduces the principles of transformative teaching, provides participants opportunities to evaluate their own ‘lightning’ experiences, and suggests classroom management strategies to enhance inquiry.


Faculty participants will make progress toward the following workshop outcomes:

  • explore the principles of Transformative Teaching

  • evaluate their own classroom management practices

  • identify techniques that create contexts for transformative learning experiences .

Faculty participants will make progress toward the following teaching area outcomes:

  • Appreciating pedagogy--the art and science of teaching and learning--as a significant higher education endeavor,

  • Identifying factors that influence pedagogical choices,

  • Creating assignments and/or courses that support higher-level learning (deep learning).

Facilitator: Carole Nash, Ph.D., Department of Integrated Science and Technology

January 30: Interpreting the Research Experience:

Over four weeks in the summer of 2014, undergraduate Studio Art student Gina Huber observed and photographed Mathematics students and faculty as they engaged in summer REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) projects. Ms. Huber aimed to visually interpret the often unseen reality of deep mathematical research in order to communicate this work to the public. The project demonstrates the synergy between research and creative expression. An exhibition of her photographs will be on display at IVS in Roop Hall, room 208 on January 30 from 12:30-2:30.  This creative research project was supported by The Institute for Visual Studies, The Department of Mathematics and Statistics, and the School of Art, Design and Art History.
