The requirements of the guidelines are matched to the pillars of the Seven Grandfathers Teachings for the Anishinaabe. Dr. Laurie McNeill Building Integrity In: Steps and Strategies for Courses and Departments Our mid-day keynote presenter is Dr. Laurie McNeill, Professor, University of British Columbia Academic integrity is foundational to the scholarly community, and a core principle we expect our students to uphold. Yet it is often a topic that is poorly understood and difficult to put into practice – and the stakes of misunderstanding are high. What could we do differently in our courses and departments to build a culture of integrity, one in which all better understand how to meet these expectations – and why they should? How can we work together – with our colleagues, our institutions, and our students – to make academic integrity a meaningful and achievable practice? This session shares research, resources, and strategies to help faculty, staff, and administrators build a culture of integrity, creating the conditions in which students better understand not only how to meet the expectations of academic integrity but also why they should. Participants will leave with specific practices and resources they can adapt for their own courses and programs. FEATURED SESSIONS Gamestorming: Radical Collaboration for Practical Results Presenters: Rogier ten Kate, DC Faculty, Faculty of Business Danielle Harder, DC Faculty, Faculty of Media, Art & Design Jonathan Carrigan, DC Faculty, Faculty of Skilled Trades & Apprenticeship This highly interactive workshop will introduce you to the collaboration techniques used by the world’s most innovative companies, including Apple, Cirque du Soleil, and IBM. Network with peers, brainstorm ideas, and work through an applied practice problem, as you learn simple and effective techniques for creative problem-solving. *NOTE: This session runs until 4 p.m. Incorporating Positive Feedback in Student Communication Presenters: Lynne Kennette, DC Faculty, Faculty of Liberal Studies Morgan Chapman, DC Faculty, Faculty of Liberal Studies Part of our jobs as teachers is to provide feedback. It can be difficult not to focus on corrective feedback (here is what you did wrong/where you lost points/how you could improve), but it’s also important to provide praise (positive feedback). In this session, we’ll look at what feedback is, why it’s important to include positive feedback (and the damaging effects that all-negative/corrective feedback can have), and some ways you can help yourself remember to include positive feedback in your communication with students. Improving Student Success: Setting up the P.A.S.S. program in your course Presenters: Rosemarie Grivich, Learning Specialist, SALS Milena Cegile, DC Faculty, Faculty of Science, Engineering & Information Technology Craig Black, Learning Specialist, SALS Brett Clayton, Learning Technologies Specialist, CTL What to bring: Laptop Are any of your students struggling in your course and perhaps unaware of how to get help or even what help is available? When they finally do reach out for help, it may be too late. The PASS (Performance Alert and Support System) program uses an Intelligent Agent in DC Connect to reach out to students via email every 3 weeks starting at the beginning of week 5. It uses traffic signal style indicators and a message to let the student know how they are doing academically and if needed, provides resources for accessing additional support. Join us to learn how you can support your students through the simple integration of PASS into your course on DC Connect. Developing global citizens through collaborative student projects: Using FLCAs to enhance and build students’ intercultural skills Presenters: Linda Cheng, DC Faculty, Faculty of Media, Art & Design Danielle Harder, DC Faculty, Faculty of Media, Art & Design Janine Knight-Grofe, Director, International Education Brian Stephens, DC Faculty, Faculty of Media Art & Design Join us to learn more about how to get involved in a FLCA and, better yet, how to make it a collaborative project – with another program and/or international partner – to further strengthen your students’ cross-cultural skills. Applied Research: The Student Perspective Presenters: Nicole Doyle, DC Faculty, Faculty of Social & Community Services Amanda Cappon, DC Faculty, Faculty of Social & Community Services Students: Sarah Sales, Nadia Sifri, Zoe Straw, Erin Williamson Applied research projects offer students valuable connections to their communities and their future work. Join us to hear from students who have been involved in applied research projects. The students will talk about the work that they have done and how it has helped to enhance their overall experience as Durham College students. NEED AN UPDATED HEADSHOT?
