Grounding Online Teaching Practice in the Community of Inquiry
Jennifer Bankers-Fulbright, Jenny Hanson, and Bonnie Tensen

Learn how to ground your virtual teaching practice in a framework that focuses on presence.  Dating back to John Dewy who molded a scientific process of inquiry into a broader learning approach , this widely embraced practice has been adapted for online teaching and learning.  As we move to establish community norms and cultural practices around online teaching, see how  teaching presence, social presence, and cognitive presence can work for you!

APS Training Session (Invitation-Only due to participation max allowance)*

Kurtis Hagans from EAB will be joining us virtually to train on the Academic Performance Solutions tool. This tool will allow us to better prepare for the future by giving all of you access to key metrics from across Augsburg’s student information system, HR system, and general ledger. The training that Kurtis will be providing is focused specifically on how you can use APS to explore whether you have the appropriate number of courses with the appropriate number of sections at the appropriate section size, given student demand. To be clear, this tool will not replace or supersede the important contextual information that you and your team provide as part of our annual review. Instead, the intention is to enrich our understanding of program health and performance with data.

Rachel Lloyd and Joaquin Muñoz

This session is the first of a three part series of workshops for 2020 Integrated Course Design Grant Awardees.

Faculty Review Portfolios*
Diane Pike and Jill Dawe

Candidates for CTP review in 20-21 and all NTT faculty undergoing review are invited to attend this virtual, somewhat truncated, but nonetheless we-hope-helpful workshop on preparing your portfolio. We plan (of course) to email a packet of documents but know from experience that it is the discussion together, questions, and time with peers that can make this event of value. CTL has long offered this professional development opportunity to support all faculty in our various review processes. The workshop is two hours (we’ll take a short break) and there will be significant time devoted to working with groups by type of review—promotion, tenure and third year, as well as review for non-tenure track faculty. Any individual interested in how to present one’s teaching,scholarship and service is most welcome. We hope you can join us.

One example will be from Katie Clark as she created ‘online practicum’ for students in the Department of Nursing and in the Honors Program during COVID19. This ‘online practicum’ included recording in real time photos, videos, and interviews with people who were working in with individuals experiencing homelessness (or the individuals themselves) sharing how COVID19 was influencing people’s lives and work. Also, Christy Mattingly will share her experiences using the 360 camera (or a virtual reality format) during immersions in Columbia and Minneapolis with students.

FERPA*
Marah Jacobson-Schulte, Lyz Wendland

FERPA is the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (updated in 1977), sometimes referred to as the Buckley Amendment. FERPA is the federal law that requires colleges and universities to maintain the privacy of student education records. FERPA guarantees students the right to consent prior to the release of a record to a third party, the right to be notified of their privacy rights, as well as other rights.

Every faculty and staff member who comes into contact with education records has an important role to play in protecting the privacy of those records and thus maintaining compliance with federal law.

Here is an opportunity to learn more about FERPA, especially as it applies to alternative delivery modes and working with students remotely during these unprecedented times. Drop in to hear an overview, learn about how FERPA relates to the Classroom Recording Policy, and ask your questions.
