Title Description Presenter Resource
Improving Student Writing with E-Rater Participants in this session will learn two things: 1) why students know so little grammar and resist grammar corrections and 2) how to use ETS-e-Rater in Turnitin to improve students' awareness of grammatical mistakes. It can be much faster and easier to allow e-Rater to catch students' grammatical mistakes. The benefits of ETS-e-Rater also include providing students with a way to independently improve written assignments. Mary McDonald, Writing Center, & Tony Menendez, Teacher Education Recording
Being an Emotion Scientist: The Critical Need of Balancing the Social/Emotional Needs with Academics in a Virtual Classroom
Our emotions can drive our attention, our memory, and our learning. Our emotions can impact how we integrate and process information. They also influence our relationships such as with our peers, colleagues, friends, family, and the teacher-student connection. Becoming an emotion scientist rather than an emotion judge is a skill to develop as an educator. We can then model this for our students. Through this pandemic we are all processing the grief and loss of many things including loss of in-person school, relationships, connectedness, and more. By proactively developing the skills of an emotion scientist, we can best support all our learners, during this challenging time, toward their personal and academic success. Join Steven Karaiskos, PhD, CSU professor, educator, writer, emotion scientist, and flaneur for this interactive webinar to build skills to become an emotion scientist - for you and for your students.
