Linda Tropp

Workshop with Dr. Linda Tropp (closed event)
Date: September 7, 2018
Time: TBA
Location: Scribner Library, Weller Room (212)

Linda R. Tropp PhD is professor of social psychology in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. For more than two decades she has studied how members of different groups experience contact with each other and how group differences in status affect cross-group relations. She has worked with national organizations on court cases relevant to racial integration, on national initiatives to improve interracial relations in schools, and with nongovernmental organizations to evaluate applied programs designed to reduce racial conflict. A fellow of the American Psychological Association and the Society of Experimental Social Psychology, Tropp has received distinguished research and teaching awards from the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues and the International Society of Political Psychology. Tropp is coauthor of When Groups Meet: The Dynamics of Intergroup Contact (2011) and editor of several books, including Moving Beyond Prejudice Reduction: Pathways to Positive Intergroup Relations (2011) and Making Research Matter: A Psychologist’s Guide to Public Engagement (forthcoming).

Gauging Student Understanding with Personal Response Tools
Date: Thursday, October 4, 2018
Time: 3:30 p.m
Location: Scribner Library, Weller Room (212)

As we continue to realize the importance of student feedback and formative assessment in the classroom, personal response systems have become increasingly ubiquitous. With so many options available, who has time to compare and vet them all? As it turns out, many of you have already begun to explore a number of interactive presentation and live polling solutions. Join us in Academic Technologies, along with several of your faculty peers, as we demonstrate and discuss different approaches to deepening student understanding through the use of personal response systems.

Innovative Pedagogies Workshop

Time: 4:00 p.m.
Location: Scribner Library, Weller Room (212)

With a focus on dispelling myths about employing creative pedagogy like “It takes too much time and effort to change things up,” or “My student ratings will go down if I do something new,” this presentation is designed for anyone who offers instruction of any kind in a college classroom setting. Special attention will be given to campus resources available to support innovative approaches to delivering your curriculum. Only 95% of the content will be factual.
