If you are trying to carve out space for thinking/reading/writing (deep work), join  Write Watchers.
We meet on ZOOM every Tuesday and Wednesday, from 10 - 11:30 a.m. In each Write Watcher session, we set goals at the beginning and then reflect on what we accomplished at the end. In between, we mute our mics and do deep work, with other supportive faculty working alongside us.

This interactive workshop will provide guidance for faculty and staff tasked with developing outcomes assessment reports for SACSCOC accreditation. It will emphasize preparing reports due on May 31, 2022 that effectively communicate gains realized in student learning outcomes. This spring, the focus is on reporting results of the assessment methods, including analysis of the collected data, preparing action plans, and documenting evidence of continuous improvement. This workshop is designed to be a highly practical, hands-on training, so participants are encouraged to bring their laptops/tablets with a draft document of their report. The presenters will be available after the workshop for individual consultation as needed. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend the session that best fits the program they assess. However, any session can be attended, since much of the information covered will be relatively similar, although the focus will be slightly different.
This workshop supports the university’s goal to provide the necessary services, resources, and infrastructure to support the university’s strategic direction.
Presented by:
Dr. Lonnie Olson, Director of Assessment, Institutional Effectiveness

These lectures and discussions will provide valuable, research-based expertise to students and faculty across multiple programs at Texas State University from the College of Education and the College of Applied Arts. The modernization of the world’s higher education system underlines the need to improve the quality and relevance of university and adult education by examining the design and delivery of study programs and addressing the needs for learning for an ever-increasing diversity of student populations. Towards these goals, we know that these presenters are reflecting deeply on teaching and learning, particularly in the area of transformative learning theory and practice and instructor-student relationships. As a Hispanic-Serving Institution located in the State of Texas, and one whose foundational mission began on teaching and learning as a normal college, this work is highly relevant to our university context and to issues that our students are preparing to address as education and organization development practitioners.

Dr. Edward Taylor is Professor Emeritus of Lifelong Learning and Adult Education from Penn State University-Harrisburg. Formerly a public-school teacher and outdoor adventure educator, as a professor he has written extensively on transformative learning theory and teaching strategies that help facilitate change. Recognizing the importance of these strategies for teaching in higher education, he has worked internationally (e.g., Africa, Europe, Central America, Middle East) and at various universities in Italy with faculty across the disciplines focusing on innovative teaching practices (active learning) that foster teaching for change. Ed’s research focuses on several areas. As previously mentioned, he has spent much time studying transformative learning theory (TL), with a particular focus on synthesizing empirical studies as well as exploring major life change among historically marginalized groups, such as the impact of Farmer Field School in southwestern Africa (Uganda, Kenya) among farmer participants. A significant co-publication in this area of TL is Handbook of Transformative Learning: Theory, Research and Practice. A second area is in medical education through both offering medical faculty graduate courses at the College of Medicine at Penn State University and conducting research in assessment, teaching beliefs and project-based learning. The third area of interest is in the study of adult education in cultural institutions (museums, natural settings (parks), zoos, libraries) with a focus on learning and teaching in public places. A publication is area is a book titled Teaching in Public Places.
