This two-day workshop provides the foundation for building students' academic literacies and helping them using these literacies to further their understanding of specific disciplines. It is divided into two workshops. Monday, August 14, 2017 Teaching Adults to Read – This introductory session will increase faculty ease and mastery in providing adult reading instruction. Participants will establish a common understanding of the four components of reading, their interdependence and importance in assessment and instruction. Participants will discuss foundational theory of the adult learner, how literacy develops, and how the Reading Apprenticeship framework is embedded in foundational reading theory. This training introduces, demonstrates, and provides practice in using the components of reading: alphabetics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension strategies and introduces the research base for reading instruction, including assessing for each component of reading. Additionally, there will be an overview of the Assessment tools and the Assessment Strategies and Reading Profiles website.

This two-day workshop provides the foundation for building students' academic literacies and helping them using these literacies to further their understanding of specific disciplines. It is divided into two workshops. Tuesday, August 15, 2017 Reading Apprenticeship framework – This workshop provides an introduction to the Reading Apprenticeship framework, its impact on student motivation and achievement, with an emphasis on participants modeling and practicing Reading Apprenticeship routines in the classroom. College faculty and staff using the Reading Apprenticeship framework regularly model disciplinary-specific literacy skills to help students build high-level comprehension strategies, engage students in building knowledge by making connections to their background knowledge, and provide guided, collaborative, and individual practice as an integral part of teaching their subject area curriculum. As a result, students develop the literacy competencies, subject area knowledge, and the learner dispositions they need — for school, college, careers, and life.

We also explore how Gödel’s incompleteness theorems relate to artificial intelligence and the limits of humanly knowable mathematics.

20:A THE CASE FOR LIVE THEATER IN THE DIGITAL ENTERTAINMENT WORLD
 
Presenter(s): Professor Wendy Wisely
 
Over 2000 years ago, eager audiences would fill amphitheaters to have their eyes and ears amazed by spectacle and music, their minds challenged with themes and language, and their hearts touched watching the struggles of characters. Today’s audiences, need only tap a button or run a finger along a touch screen to bring up endless entertainment and educational content; and all from the comfort of their private couch. How can live theatre compete with that? Should live theatre just take its final bow and limp away into nostalgic memory? Why do people still go to see and hear plays or musicals? What are today's audiences seeking?

How was Donald Trump elected the 45th President of the United States? Was it the disgruntled white working class looking for a populist savior? Was it hatred of women and anti-feminist attitudes? Was it the death cries of white supremacy fearful of demographic change? Did the Democrats choose the wrong candidate in the primary? Or, do each of these singular causal analyses have limitations that obscure a clearer understanding of this election? Dr. Michael Hale will critically evaluate these common theories and provide his own analysis.

25:A Søren Kierkegaard vs. Silicon Valley
 
Presenter(s): Mark Stapp, PhD
 
The philosopher Søren Kierkegaard critiqued what he saw as intellectual hubris among his Enlightenment contemporaries. He argued that human beings tend to forget that they are existing creatures rather than abstract intellects. Our own age shares some of the confidence and ambition at which Kierkegaard raised an eyebrow. Are the most fundamental human questions answerable by technology and Big Data analysis? Are much-publicized beliefs that death is “solvable” or in an impending technological singularity as reasonable as they might seem? This talk explores how Kierkegaard’s response to his own age remains relevant to ours.

27:A Scientific Teaching: Card Games
 
Presenter(s): Abigail Zoger, Dan Famini, Katy Jamshidi
 
ARe you interested in using active learning in your course? Or do you already incorporate active learning but are looking for some new ideas? Dan Famini has developed endless ways to use a cheap deck of cards and some address labels to create an almost infinite number of active learning exercises. We will have access to a computer printer and provide playing cards. Come with a course and topic in mind as well as access to course materials. We will have some laptops, but if you can bring your own that will be helpful. Our long term goal is to develop a community of faculty educating ourselves on the research on teaching in the sciences.
