Justin’s book on high structure course design coming in late 2024 or early 2025 in the Macmillan Scientific Teaching series! Stay tuned!
Justin gives engaging and interactive workshops, plenary talks, seminars, and panel discussions to faculty, staff, administrators, and students on the broad topics of course and curriculum design, evidence-based teaching practices, SoTL and DBER, and evaluation of teaching practices.
Below are some the most popular topics within these spaces but please contact Justin for workshops or talks on other topics related to higher education teaching and learning.
Specific to your situation
Customizable to your needs
High structure course design
Introduces how scaffolding students through the pre-class, in-class, and after-class learning experience of high structure course design improves student learning, engagement, and course outcomes. Includes hands-on guided development of high structure course materials (including learning objectives, class materials, and assessment ideas) so that participants leave with tangible additions to their courses and teaching.
Given at University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, University of Business and Technology (Jeddah, Saudi Arabia), University of California, Irvine, Purdue University, University of Wyoming, Colorado School of Mines, CINVESTAV (Mexico City), and the Society for Portuguese Physiology
Best practices with classroom response systems
Walks participants how to best make use of all of the “bells and whistles” with modern classroom response system including making good use of different question types (multiple choice, multiple select, numerical, text entry, target) and peer instruction methods to enhance student engagement and learning.
Given at University of Colorado, Colorado State University, College of the Mainland, Colorado School of Mines, and to the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society
Evaluation of effective teaching
Highlights the various ways of evaluating teaching and course design and provides suggestions for a more holistic evaluation experience so as to provide data to formatively improve teaching, course design, and student outcomes.
Given at University of California, Irvine
Getting started with SoTL and DBER
Provides an overview of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) and Discipline-Based Education Research (DBER) to help faculty, staff, and students learn the basics of how to scholarly and scientifically assess courses, curriculum, teaching, and student learning and affect.
Given at Colorado School of Mines, CINVESTAV (Mexico City), the American Association of Engineering Education, and to the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society
