Today, 1 pm: The Value of Mission-Driven Teaching Excellence Webinar

submitted by

Belong Webinar: Tuesday, April 2nd, 2024 at 1-2pm CT.

Title: Independent Colleges and Universities: The Value of Mission-Driven Teaching Excellence

Description: Independent Colleges and Universities that focus on the liberal arts often have a mission and an academic infrastructure that supports teaching improvement, and it should be celebrated! Yet, more can be done. This session draws from a multi-institutional observational study covering more than 700 higher education courses in a range of contexts, from regional public universities to highly ranked private universities, from small liberal arts colleges to large flagship universities. Connected to her 2023 book, published by Harvard Education Press, Great College Teaching: Where It Happens and How to Foster It Everywhere, Corbin Campbell will map the terrain, discussing teaching improvement within a spectrum of academic contexts, across multiple disciplines, and for various course settings. Dr. Campbell will describe the best practices of exemplary teaching institutions, in which evidence-based practices such as equity-based and culturally relevant teaching support student learning. She will also describe policies and cultures necessary to prioritize teaching and promote faculty development.

Expected Learning Outcomes:

Explore the diverse terrain of teaching across various academic contexts, disciplines, and course settings to improve instruction.

Discover best practices from exemplary institutions, including equity-based and culturally relevant evidence-based teaching practices, you can use to support student learning.

Identify policies and cultures that are essential to prioritize teaching and encourage faculty development.

If you can’t attend at this time, please register and you will receive the webinar recording.

Online Survey – Chance to Win $100 Gift Card

submitted by

Hello Auggies! I am a graduate student seeking participants for a research study. I am exploring how one’s ability to recognize and regulate their own and others’ emotions may relate to feelings of depression and social disconnect. Participation in this study will involve completing a series of behavioral health inventories and a demographic screener that will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. These inventories will ask if you have experienced symptoms of depression or loneliness and ask how intensely you experience your everyday emotions. Following completion of these inventories, participants will complete a test online that will walk participants through a variety of different tasks, such as recognition of facial expressions and implied social meanings. This test will take approximately 45 minutes to complete. All participation in this study is done online from the comfort of your own home. Students are invited to participate in this study if you: (1) are between the ages of 18 and 31; (2) have not been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, schizophrenia, or a personality disorder; (3) have not experienced an interpersonally traumatic life event (i.e., assault by another human being); and (4) are not currently experiencing a major health concern (i.e., life threatening illness/injury or significant transplant/removal surgery).

For your time, participants will be entered into a random lottery drawing for one of three $100 Amazon gift cards!

If you have any questions or concerns regarding participation in this study, please contact me at If you would like to participate in this study, please click the link below. You will be taken to a secure, online survey where you will be presented with a consent form followed by the demographic screener and brief inventories. Upon completion of these, you will be shown the link to the final assessment.

Thank you!
