In this hands-on workshop, we will review some of the research from neuroscience and psychology about how stereotype threat and students’ mindset can impact their learning. We will then explore specific strategies we can use to help our students learn more effectively.

A current CSU study estimates the share of homeless students at 8.7% and food insecure students at 21%. At the same time, textbook costs have risen astronomically. The result is a large number of students no longer purchase textbooks. What can you do to help?
In 2016, SDSU Instructional Technology Services (ITS) applied for and received two grants to promote awareness among faculty about affordable learning solutions and to encourage faculty to adopt cheaper or even free instructional resources including textbooks. As part of this program, we are providing stipends to faculty for various activities including faculty ambassadors, faculty adopters, and faculty materials reveiws. At this Lunch & Learn, come find out how you can participate.
Doors open at 11:30am. Registration required: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-what-why-and-how-of-open-educational-resources-registration-32631935999
This Lunch & Learn will explore how faculty members can best support students who have experienced sexual violence. What do we say? What do we not say? As members of the campus community, we are required to report incidences of sexual and dating violence. How can we manage our reporting obligations while creating a survivor-responsive campus community? This event will provide learning space for faculty to become familiar with the scope of the problem of sexual assault on college campuses and the resources available for survivors at SDSU. The majority of the time will focus on best practices for responding sensitively and effectively to student survivors who are experiencing an immediate crisis or ongoing trauma. Participants will leave with sample language for their syllabi and resources guides to share with students.

One of the most common complaints among instructors is that students do not come to class prepared. In this workshop, we will discuss theories of motivation from the research literature and the implications for our classes. Participants will leave with several options they can use to motivate their own students to complete pre-class work.
Doors open at 11:30am. Registration required.
What are F&A costs (formerly known as indirect costs)? What is covered by F&A? What are the current rates? This workshop will answer your questions about Facilities and Administrative (F&A) costs associated with your proposal or project. Whether you are an experienced researcher or new to the grant proposal this informative workshop will provide you with helpful definitions of F&A costs, explain how F&A rates are determined, and dispel the myths related to F&A costs.
The National Institutes of Health K awards provide a mentored research training experience for senior postdoctoral fellows or junior faculty-level candidates. These awards are designed to promote career development and move recipients to the point where they are able to conduct independent research and compete for major grant support.
SDSU faculty members who have been recipients of this prestigious award will be discussing their K award experiences and offering tips at this workshop. Assistant professors who are interested in applying for an award in the NIH K series will find this workshop very informative. More information about the K award program is available here: https://researchtraining.nih.gov/programs/career-development.
Presented by Deb Pires, PhD, UCLA Department of Life Sciences Core Education
Research shows that classrooms centered on active student participation consistently deliver increased learning gains while reducing achievement gaps. Deb Pires, PhD, knows this firsthand, having transformed her classroom at UCLA into a more active course with diverse learning exercises. In this presentation, she discusses how she has integrated technology-based content using the i>clicker audience response system along with tech-free activities and in-class questions to elevate student learning outcomes. You’ll come away with at least one new thing to try in your class!
