(Live Stream Attendance) - The Challenge of Diversity: Insights and Strategies for International Students and Those Who Teach Them - 1:50-2:50
1:50-2:50 - One hour session
Click here to access the Zoom link for this session

International students bring rich diversity to campus. With the benefits of this diversity, however, there also come challenges for the students themselves, their classmates, and their professors and advisors. Despite high admission standards and the tailored training and orientation opportunities that exist for Georgetown’s international students, professors may notice performance gaps such as hesitation to express critical commentary, limited class participation, writing assignments lacking clarity and/or originality, or email requests and office-hour interactions that seem pragmatically awkward.

In this session, teaching professors from the Center for Language Education and Development (who work exclusively with international students) and an Office of Global Services (OGS) Advisor/Programming Manager share insights for faculty who desire to better understand the challenges that their international students face. Panelists also share strategies and advice for capitalizing on the diverse perspectives that international students bring and for helping these students thrive. Finally, the panel elicits input from participants about additional challenges regarding international students and leads a discussion about ways that campus units can best share knowledge and support both our students and each other in dealing with the challenges of diversity.

Teaching to the Times: Navigating Difficult Issues in Our Courses - 1:50-4:15
1:50-4:15 - Two and a half hour session
This interactive workshop will explore various techniques for broaching, unpacking, and transforming challenges presented by current events. Regardless of whether our courses are already focused on political issues directly, and irrespective of our own political ideologies, what pedagogies are effective for promoting inclusive spaces for dialogue, reflection, and engagement with timely topics and issues? How might we integrate real-time concerns into the longer-term questions that animate our fields and inquiries? How can we bridge the cultivation of analytical skills and capacities for student self-care while maintaining academic rigor and the integrity of our course themes? How much space are we willing and able to give ourselves to experiment with new pedagogies and cutting-edge issues in our coursework? Can the perception of “crisis” also yield opportunities for transformational learning?

In this session we will consider options for addressing such queries, covering an array of potential techniques, and opening up space to compare notes and best practices for incorporating difficult and timely topics into our work. (The intended audience is primarily educators; outcomes include honing skills of facilitation and design.)

Evidence of “Good” Writing: Assessing Student Writing in the Major - 3:00-4:00
3:00-4:00 - One hour session
What are the goals for student writing in your department? Are students achieving these goals? As part of the revision to core writing requirements at Georgetown, all undergraduate programs have developed descriptions of the kinds of writing students should be able to do and identified how the programs will help students practice these forms of writing. Now that the Integrated Writing requirement has been in place for a couple of years, this is a good time to start asking how well it’s working, for faculty and for students. In this workshop, we’ll review our goals and discuss how well students are achieving them. The workshop will examine four questions:

What do we want students to know about writing in our fields?
What do we want students to be able to do as writers?
What are we doing to help them develop knowledge and skills as writers?
How do we know whether these strategies work?

The workshop will provide tools to help us examine the connection between our goals and the outcomes visible in students’ writing. Participants should bring a copy of their program’s Integrated Writing statement and a few student papers that represent different levels of performance.  

*Note: this session ends at 4:15pm. Listed as ending at 4:00 to allow registration for the Social hour.

(Live Stream Attendance) - Tools for Active Learning and Feedback - 9:50-12:00
9:50-12:00 - Two hour session
Click here to access the Zoom link for this session
This session includes a workshop plus a faculty panel.

First, you'll get hands-on with some of the newest technologies available at Georgetown. Featured technologies include Remark (a video annotation tool), Voicethread (a tool for having discussions around a variety of media), and PollEverywhere (polling software). We'll demonstrate some of the the most common and most engaging uses of these technologies both in and beyond the classroom.

Then, hear how faculty have incorporated these and other technologies into their courses to create a more active learning environment. The panel presentations ill be followed by a Q&A.

Panel presentations:

Blogs as Tools for Peer Critique, Reflection, and Learning In a Residency Program-Jeanine Turner, Elise Morris, Michelle Roett, and Katherine Oberkircher
How can residents learn about their interaction with residents by watching each other? How do residents talk about patients with each other? How can we better understand health literacy? Over the past 4 years, the Family Medicine Program and the Communication, Culture, and Technology Program at Georgetown University have collaborated on a project to promote health literacy, explore peer feedback and learning, and integrate asynchronous (communication that does not happen in real time) technology solutions. We have instituted a password-protected blog where we upload doctor and patient interaction videos. Each resident is filmed once per year. Then, residents are able to view those videos and discuss and reflect on their doctor and patient interaction with each other within the blog space.

This project provides an asynchronous opportunity for communication between residents, physicians and communications specialists for training with a focus on communication and patient interactions. We have uploaded over 58 videos and have over 258 comments about these videos among approximately 30 residents. During this session, we would like to discuss the logistic challenges and initial findings.

Games & Active Learning Techniques to Help Students Understand Chemistry-- Milena Shahu and Yong Lee
Games and polling can be used to engage and challenge students in the classroom. The instructor incorporated a Jeopardy! online game into the General Chemistry II for Majors course in place of a traditional review session before each exam. In addition, throughout the semester instructor tested students on concepts and problems introduced in lecture using the Poll Everywhere mobile polling application. The presenters will discuss the goals and benefits of incorporating these active learning activities, results from student feedback, the process for creating the game and the poll questions, and the experience of participating in a faculty cohort.  

From Perception To Production: An Innovative Teaching Practice In Arabic Heritage Classroom-- Yehia A Mohamed
The influence of globalization and Western culture on the Arab world has become especially notable in Arab students of contemporary generations, as a growing number of supposedly native Arabic speakers living in Arab countries are now identified as heritage speakers. In modern-day Arab societies, affluent families predominantly choose to send their children to private and international schools where English is the primary language of instruction. Although English education is essential for daily communication, the growing emphasis on English is currently developing at the expense of the Arabic language.

This aforementioned category of students has varying levels of language skills, as their language perception skills tend to be much stronger than their language production skills. Our Arabic Heritage Program teaching approach aims to improve students’ language production skills through shifting focus from listening to speaking and from reading to writing. In doing so, the program uses a variety of innovative and creative teaching practices and strategies.

Using Technology to Easily Implement Testing-Enhanced Learning-- Paul Merritt
In this presentation I will review some of the literature on testing-enhanced learning as well and present data from my own courses showing that frequent quizzing is related to improved outcomes for students, as well as data showing that students believe frequent quizzing is helpful to them and that they prefer courses which implement frequent low-stakes quizzes. Finally, some discussion of how to use available technology to easily implement low-stakes quizzing.

Using Technology to Easily Implement Testing-Enhanced Learning-- Paul Merritt
In this presentation I will review some of the literature on testing-enhanced learning as well and present data from my own courses showing that frequent quizzing is related to improved outcomes for students, as well as data showing that students believe frequent quizzing is helpful to them and that they prefer courses which implement frequent low-stakes quizzes. Finally, some discussion of how to use available technology to easily implement low-stakes quizzing.

The Georgetown Safety Net: Caring for Students of Concern - 9:50-12:00
9:50-12:00 - Two hour session
Our students are among the best and brightest in the world. They have amassed impressive records of academic and personal achievement, and engage in our academic community at the highest levels. Sometimes, they do so at a cost to their own health. So, who are the students populating our classrooms? What do they struggle with, how do they cope, and how worried should we be about their health and wellness?

This session will be an opportunity to dive into the data that shapes our understanding of our students’ health and related needs, especially around issues of depression, anxiety, extreme stress, suicidality, self-harm, and abuse of drugs and alcohol. As our Jesuit mission calls us to see, know, and serve our students as “whole people,” this session will explore that call as both an opportunity and a responsibility. Using the data as a guide, the session will provide insight into the Georgetown model of a “Safety Net” – a coordinated network of campus resources and services, systems of risk mitigation and management, and pointed effort to ensure compliance with ADA, Title IX, FERPA and HIPAA.

Lunch (In Person Attendance): Educating the Whole Person for Beginners - 12:10-1:40
12:10-1:40 - One and a half hour session
When students come into our classrooms, they bring more than their intellects; they bring their past experiences, their fears and hopes, their current struggles and passions, and a range of identities, all of which shape their learning. These aspects of your students can shape your teaching, too—and it doesn't have to be a daunting task. Recognizing students as whole human beings and taking their well-being into consideration doesn't require a huge course overhaul. In this session, we'll talk about the benefits of small adjustments, brief exercises, and mini-conversations aimed at student well-being. We'll also share and play with ideas that teachers can implement in any course.

1:50-4:00 - Two hour session
Click here to access the Zoom link for this session

This session will be live-streamed!
In any discipline or field, a key goal (and challenge) is supporting the learning of all students despite their many differences. Drawing from Georgetown’s core mission of Educating the Whole Person, we strive to create learning environments where students of all identities and backgrounds can flourish. Inclusive Teaching refers to the ways in which pedagogy, curricula, and assessment are designed and delivered to engage students in learning that is meaningful, relevant, and accessible to all. It means creating a learning environment where students, irrespective of their backgrounds, can maximize their own learning and the learning of others.

This session will provide a space to discuss and explore principles and practices connected to inclusive teaching and learning, share strategies for applying these ideas to the classroom or other educational spaces, and think about who our students are, who we are, and how that informs what and how we teach. We will focus on pedagogical approaches that productively engage student identity and experience in the learning process and incorporate active learning techniques. This session is for faculty and staff both new to inclusive pedagogy and those looking to engage more deeply and intentionally.

Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

3:00-4:00 - One hour session
This workshop promotes the design and implementation of an interactive syllabus to better reach and engage students in its contents. How many times have you received a question and thought “It’s in the syllabus!” The course syllabus is a treasure of information and expectations of any course, but somehow it is often overlooked by those who need it the most: students. The traditional way of presenting a syllabus can sometimes be too institutional or instructor-sided for students to be captivated. Many times when designing or redesigning a course the syllabus style and presentation do not change, at most some content might have been modified.

It is time to make a better first impression with students and build a student-centered syllabus. Come design a more visually appealing and dynamic syllabus. In this workshop, we will review the base of an effective digital, multi-sensory design syllabus that in turn holds students accountable for the course, instructor and institutional expectations, guidelines, policies, among other important information.

Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

9:50-11:20 - One and a half hour session
The goal of this 90-minute workshop is to introduce participants to mind-body tools that are being implemented in curricula to reduce the deleterious effects of chronic stress and burnout. Specifically, this session will focus on gaining insight from the physiology of stress to understand why chronic stress makes us ill and how meditation and other mind-body techniques are effective in managing stress and building resilience. Participants will have an opportunity to experience several mind-body medicine skills (such as autogenic training and mindfulness meditation) and thereby gain insight to their impact and utility in education and in life.

Upon completion of this session, participants will be able:
  • To explain the physiology and pathophysiology of stress and the scientific basis for mind-body therapies (such as meditation, breathing and imagery) used to reduce stress and improve well-being 
  • To reflect on the “experiential learning” exercises used to teach faculty and students Mind-Body Medicine skills for self-awareness and resilience. 
  • To discuss the interventional models currently being explored for students, and faculty to build resiliency and prevent, limit or reverse burnout. 
The workshop is open to faculty, students, staff, administrators, who are interested in incorporating mind-body medicine skills in their teaching.

As Georgetown students prepare to transition into life after graduation, many struggle to “connect the dots” between transformative experiences inside and outside the classroom in a way that allows them to thrive professionally.

In this three-part presentation, staff from two campus career centers will share information on where graduates are going with their degree, an intervention to help students make sense of their experiences, and a core competency model to address the gap between academic skills and soft skills. During this interactive presentation, attendees will be asked to share perspectives, participate in reflective activities, and consider future collaborations to support students as they integrate their academic and professional selves.

The Georgetown Sexual Misconduct Survey: A Report on Survey Findings, our Task Force, and Our Work Going Forward- 
Laura Cutway, Rosemary Kilkenny, Todd Olson, Michael Tartaglia
This reporting session will provide participants with a more in-depth understanding of the institutional work and conversations about the critical issue of sexual misconduct. A group of administrators, faculty, and students have spent this academic year working intensively in response to the results of Georgetown's first Sexual Misconduct Climate Survey. The survey revealed a set of challenging facts about the impact of this phenomenon on our campus, and provided a call for us to strengthen and broaden our efforts to respond. The areas we have discussed include our campus culture, policy issues, support programs for survivors, reporting mechanisms, a range of educational programs and engagements, the role of alcohol and drugs, and the needs of several vulnerable populations. The intended audience is all faculty and administrators interested in engaging this topic more deeply. The outcome is simply to broaden awareness and help bring about positive change on the several dimensions of this complex problem.

Don't Build a Ladder, Tear Down the Wall: Reporting out from the Advisory Board for Affordability and Access- Andria Wisler
We will provide an overview of the Advisory Board for Access and Affordability and our year's community-building and work process towards the final outcome of a report presented to senior leadership. The report details the 35-member Board's vision and action plans for a Georgetown in which access and affordability are prioritized for all at a moment when parallel structures (work-arounds and special forms) footnote our processes and policies. The presenters, co-Chairs of the Board, will share how we stressed a vision that embodied a whole institution approach in order to displace the burden for coping away from the student. Such a transformational strategy encourages a commitment to further learning diverse educational histories and trajectories. It implicates all members of our community into a shared responsibility for creating a Georgetown experience, environment, and culture that uplifts the human dignity of all faculty, staff, and students. The paramount objective of the Advisory Board for Affordability and Access is to demolish barriers that prevent students from fully embracing all aspects of the Georgetown experience—and avoid building ladders, which workaround existing university policies and structures.

Undocumented Students Working Group Report- Angel Garcia
This session will highlight the experiences of undocumented students at Georgetown University and the ways in which faculty and staff can be allies to both undocumented students and students from mixed status families. We will share an overview of the national landscape in regards to undocumented students at universities nationwide, with a focus on what Georgetown is currently doing to support their respective journies. The Undocumented Student Task Force is comprised of students, faculty, and staff from across campus whose mission is to support undocumented students and the unique challenges they may face while at the university. The audience for this session is for anyone on campus - faculty, staff, administrator - who wants to learn more about supporting undocumented students at Georgetown. We strongly believe it is everyone's responsibility to be aware of the resources that exist on campus so that if a faculty or staff member becomes aware of a student's (or their family's) status, they are equipped with the necessary tools, knowledge and resources to support that student in a way that holds their humanity.

The survey revealed a set of challenging facts about the impact of this phenomenon on our campus, and provided a call for us to strengthen and broaden our efforts to respond. The areas we have discussed include our campus culture, policy issues, support programs for survivors, reporting mechanisms, a range of educational programs and engagements, the role of alcohol and drugs, and the needs of several vulnerable populations. The intended audience is all faculty and administrators interested in engaging this topic more deeply. The outcome is simply to broaden awareness and help bring about positive change on the several dimensions of this complex problem.

Don't Build a Ladder, Tear Down the Wall: Reporting out from the Advisory Board for Affordability and Access- Andria Wisler
We will provide an overview of the Advisory Board for Access and Affordability and our year's community-building and work process towards the final outcome of a report presented to senior leadership. The report details the 35-member Board's vision and action plans for a Georgetown in which access and affordability are prioritized for all at a moment when parallel structures (work-arounds and special forms) footnote our processes and policies. The presenters, co-Chairs of the Board, will share how we stressed a vision that embodied a whole institution approach in order to displace the burden for coping away from the student. Such a transformational strategy encourages a commitment to further learning diverse educational histories and trajectories. It implicates all members of our community into a shared responsibility for creating a Georgetown experience, environment, and culture that uplifts the human dignity of all faculty, staff, and students. The paramount objective of the Advisory Board for Affordability and Access is to demolish barriers that prevent students from fully embracing all aspects of the Georgetown experience—and avoid building ladders, which workaround existing university policies and structures.

Undocumented Students Working Group Report- Angel Garcia
This session will highlight the experiences of undocumented students at Georgetown University and the ways in which faculty and staff can be allies to both undocumented students and students from mixed status families. We will share an overview of the national landscape in regards to undocumented students at universities nationwide, with a focus on what Georgetown is currently doing to support their respective journies. The Undocumented Student Task Force is comprised of students, faculty, and staff from across campus whose mission is to support undocumented students and the unique challenges they may face while at the university. The audience for this session is for anyone on campus - faculty, staff, administrator - who wants to learn more about supporting undocumented students at Georgetown. We strongly believe it is everyone's responsibility to be aware of the resources that exist on campus so that if a faculty or staff member becomes aware of a student's (or their family's) status, they are equipped with the necessary tools, knowledge and resources to support that student in a way that holds their humanity.

Assessing Humanities Learning in the Undergraduate German Curriculum at Georgetown University - 1:50-2:50
1:50-2:50 - One hour session
Foreign language programs are major contributors to the humanities learning mission of colleges and universities, and as the value of humanities learning has become increasingly challenged, it is important to show what foreign language programs contribute to humanities learning.

This presentation reports on a project from the literacies-oriented, integrated curriculum of the German department, in which the humanities learning of second-year (i.e., intermediate) students was assessed. During our talk, we will outline our conceptualization of “humanities learning,” the process we used to specify humanities learning goals at the intermediate level, and the assessment instruments we developed in order to measure students’ humanities learning. We will then present the results of the assessment and offer an analysis and interpretation of those results.  In so doing, we seek to demonstrate how any department or program that values the teaching and learning of humanistic knowledge can meaningfully assess this learning and present the results of this assessment to internal and external stakeholders.

Choose your Own Adventure: Technology-Enhanced Learning - 3:00-4:15

Play the “TEL Arcade!” There is a room full of presenters, and each presentation is 20-minutes long. Which 3 do you pick?? Choose your own adventure and hear more about technology-enhanced learning (TEL) projects at GU!

Presentations include the following:

Replacing Rollover with Click-and-Reveal Interactions for Mobile Learning-- 
Taeyeol Park
Rollover objects allow instructors to add interactivity to their learning projects. These objects are initially hidden and are revealed when students hover over a particular area with a mouse. However, rollovers are not mobile friendly. This session will demonstrate how to create rollover interactions and replace rollover objects with advanced actions based on tap events using Adobe Captivate, an e-learning authoring tool. Participants will also learn how to publish their Captivate projects as HTML5 content for mobile learning and set up a plan for developing a downloadable app. This session is intended for those who are interested in creating online interactive learning tools and making the tools mobile friendly. 

Simple Techniques for Creating and Using Video in Canvas-- Mark Wiest
This show-and-tell session will allow attendees to learn simple ways to incorporate video in to their Canvas courses beyond just using classroom lecture capture. Using Georgetown supported video capture and upload tools this demonstration will show how to easily post and embed video into Canvas courses without the need of a studio or sophisticated software and equipment. And, since this is a hands on session, attendees may even have the chance to record and post their own short videos in Canvas. 

Teaching Arabic Alphabet using E-Book Widgets-- Hany Fazza
The main goal of this project is to develop new technique for teaching the Arabic alphabet for beginner non-native speakers, by creating interactive drills using e-book widgets. Widgets were designed to help students recognize and learn the alphabet. This is followed by a set of widgets as a controlled practice of the alphabet. Then, students use these alphabets to produce words and take a quiz after each unit. The E-book widgets include flash cards, split worksheets, quiz, hangman game, jigsaw puzzle, randomness, and word search, crossword and memory game. Additionally, videos explain the writing system for each single letter in Arabic.

Flipping the Sophomore Level Mathematical Physics Class with the EdX platform-- Jim Freericks
In the Spring 2017 semester, we created a flipped classroom experience for students enrolled in Physics 155 "Mathematical and Computational Methods in Physics". The lectures have been replaced by voice-over powerpoint slides and the class room experience is based entirely on students working through self-guided problems that cover the material. The advantage is providing significantly more student engagement with using the techniques they are learning, helping with retention of the ideas and methods for use in later classes.

M.A.P. - Flipping the Classroom in Academic Advising-- Kelly Grady
The MAP, My Academic Plan, is an innovative advising tool developed as part of orientation for graduate distance nursing students with application to undergraduate and campus-based students. The MAP flips the advising model in that students take stock and build a plan for success without individual or group advising sessions. Students complete a self reflection exercise that prompts them to consider the elements of previous academic successes, the demands of their current life circumstances, the rigors of their new academic program and how to prepare for academic success. The MAP is valuable independently for the reflection and planning it prompts for students, however, advisers can incorporate it when individually meeting a student and as a vehicle to conduct needs assessments.

Wikipedia, Pedagogy, and Georgetown's Community of Practice- Megan Browndorf, Lisa Strong, and Lisbeth Fuisz
At last year’s TLISI, a group of faculty and librarians participated in a Productive Open Design Space (PODS) on Wikipedia editing in the classroom. This three-day intensive working period revealed common goals and created a level of trust and camaraderie that inspired us to create a formal Community of Practice (COP). This session will report on the work of teaching faculty from this community of practice who incorporate Wikipedia editing assignments into their work. Faculty will describe their experiences, discuss the successes and pitfalls of their Wikipedia classroom projects, and the role of the community of practice in supporting their ability to experiment with a Wikipedia project. The COP’s goal is to help promote and sustain the use of Wikipedia-based classroom assignments at Georgetown.The group is meant to be a center of support for faculty that want to experiment with a Wikipedia editing project, but may be concerned about the practicalities of implementation. Learn about using Wikipedia in your pedagogy and the community of support we have at Georgetown to help you on your way.

Empathy Mapping: A Powerful Tool for Exploring Diverse Perspectives - 3:00-4:15
3:00-4:15 - One hour and fifteen minute session
This workshop will introduce instructors to empathy mapping, a pedagogical tool developed and piloted in Ethics Lab at the Kennedy Institute of Ethics. Originally drawn from the world of design, an empathy map is used to help students gain a deeper understanding of another person’s perspective to gain ethical, action-oriented insight about an unfamiliar experience.

This workshop will introduce empathy mapping by guiding instructors through the exercise as their students would experience it, using materials from Ethics Lab’s empathy mapping toolkit. The topical focus will be the divided political context in contemporary American society. Members of the Ethics Lab team will introduce the prompt, run a simulation of the activity, and lead a post-activity discussion of the issues the empathy map surfaced, as well offering advice for adapting this toolkit to approach challenging topics in different disciplines. Our team is committed to facilitating use of this tool in classrooms throughout Georgetown. After the workshop, we will be available to partner with faculty and instructors to help incorporate this tool into their own classroom instruction.

(Live Stream Attendance) Going Further: The Unexpected Joys for Educators and Students of Incorporating Jesuit Mission and Identity in an Interdisciplinary Classroom - 9:50-10:50
9:50-10:50 - One hour session
Click here to access the Zoom link for this session

How can Jesuit spirituality serve as a bridge for undergraduate and graduate students to serve the common good in professional life? How is the Catholic and Jesuit tradition a resource to realize cross-disciplinary learning goals? How can educators at Georgetown become more aware of the transformation that occurs in students and in themselves?

This workshop will address these questions by introducing teaching methodologies inspired by Jesuit values and practices, particularly individual and group reflection, that can be used in a variety of class settings. Based in part on the inaugural offering of “Jesuit Values in Professional Practice,” a Community-Based Learning elective offered at the School of Continuing Studies for the first time in fall 2016, this session will provide a brief overview of the Jesuit approach to education, share teaching lessons from “Jesuit Values in Professional Practice,” and provide encouragement and tools for incorporating Jesuit values in courses across the campus. Participants will walk away with practical insights about how to go beyond academic mastery to form students who lead lives of meaning and purpose. This session is especially useful for anyone who wants to know more about Georgetown’s Jesuit mission and identity and its broad applicability.

This workshop will address these questions by introducing teaching methodologies inspired by Jesuit values and practices, particularly individual and group reflection, that can be used in a variety of class settings. Based in part on the inaugural offering of “Jesuit Values in Professional Practice,” a Community-Based Learning elective offered at the School of Continuing Studies for the first time in fall 2016, this session will provide a brief overview of the Jesuit approach to education, share teaching lessons from “Jesuit Values in Professional Practice,” and provide encouragement and tools for incorporating Jesuit values in courses across the campus. Participants will walk away with practical insights about how to go beyond academic mastery to form students who lead lives of meaning and purpose. This session is especially useful for anyone who wants to know more about Georgetown’s Jesuit mission and identity and its broad applicability.

The Nod – Looking for Signs of Solidarity at an Elite Institution - 9:50-10:50
9:50-10:50 - One hour session
Presenters invite participants to contribute to the development of their theory that black students at predominitely white, elite institutions engage in ‘the nod’ (an act of recognition to another black individual used to show solidarity) less than those at predominitely white, non-elite institutions.  The goal of this focus group will be to discuss our hypothesis and engage with faculty and staff regarding their experiences seeing (or not seeing) ‘the nod’ at their institutions. The facilitators will define, ‘the nod’, share the results of their data collection efforts, and ask questions to further develop their research and begin developing strategies to support black students on campus.

The Veteran Education Training Ally Program: VET Allies - 9:50-10:50
9:50-10:50 - One hour session
The Society of Jesus, also known as the Jesuits, was founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola after recovering from a battle wound and overcoming the challenges he faced while transitioning from being a warrior to a civilian. Due to the deep historical connections to the military and the Jesuit values of care and service, Georgetown has the opportunity to honor St. Ignatius by serving the military-connected community who are a part of the campus as students, faculty, staff, alumni, and neighbors.

The Veteran Education Training (VET) Ally Program is designed to start a dialogue among the campus community to identify the strengths and challenges service members, veterans, and military family members face while pursuing their academic and career goals in a civilian environment. The mission of program is to provide military students with a welcoming and supportive environment and build bridges of understanding between the military and civilian communities. The seminar will offer a brief history of military students in higher education, identifying the services available both on and off campus, how to be a supportive faculty member or administrator, and perspectives from current military students.

(Live Stream Attendance) Inclusion and Exclusion in Student Spaces - 11:00-12:00
11:00-12:00 - One hour session
Click here to access the Zoom link for this session

In recent years, Georgetown students have begun to talk of an increase in the exclusivity of co-curricular organizations and experiences. Students are faced with increasing opportunities for engagement, yet many are gated by applications, interviews, and ultimately selection by their slightly older peers at rates that rival the Georgetown admission rate. Some selectivity is necessary; there are very real constraints on resources that create boundaries for participation. Similarly, students should be discouraged from spreading their time and attention across too many experiences. However, the selectivity models seen in both university-sponsored programming and student-created organizations may contribute to the perception that engagement on campus is exclusionary. For students, notably those in their first or second year at Georgetown, the backdrop of this narrative creates another level of insecurity and hyper-activity that may be detrimental to their early adjustment experiences and academic success.

What is actually happening with exclusionary co-curricular experiences? Does this impact students’ classroom experiences and learning outcomes? How do students make sense of this phenomenon? And what can be done about it? This round table discussion is structured to provide context for a conversation about student experiences with exclusionary structures at Georgetown, consider the impact on academic success, and explore the strategies to address this phenomenon.

The Georgetown Maker Hub: How Can We Work for You? - 11:00-12:00
11:00-12:00 - One hour session
Having opened to all students and faculty in October 2016, the Maker Hub is a creative space connecting Georgetown researchers, makers and entrepreneurs from across campus with specialized equipment and a collaborative atmosphere to design, solve problems, experiment and innovate.

Recognizing that its function as a "Hub" based in the library affords it a unique opportunity to for cross-departmental collaboration, the Maker Hub has been actively reaching out across the campus to partner up with a range of class, initiatives, and students groups. The Maker Hub has hosted class sessions, run design workshops, and routinely helps students develop projects that involve 3D printing, laser cutting, and interactive electronics. We also work with "creative labs" in other departments, providing recommendations on policies and procedures, and in some cases taking on their equipment.

In this focus group, we'll share a bit about some of the partnership models we've been using, but mostly we'll brainstorm with attendees on new ways to interact. How can your programs benefit from hands-on, peer-to-peer learning? What obstacles are there for deeper interaction with the Maker Hub? How might your curriculum and programs change if you had ready access to advanced fabrication and prototyping technologies? What kind of equipment do you wish we had?

It's our hope that this session leads to new relationships, actionable input, and more excitement about the Maker Hub at Georgetown.
