Deepening Reflection on Social Justice Themes Using Artifacts and Works of Art
Learning Outcomes Participants in this session will:
  • Experience and learn inquiry-based learning techniques to support reflection.
  • Explore interdisciplinary opportunities through the integration of artifacts and artwork into student reflection.
  • Become more familiar with LUMA and May Weber collections, as well as receive faculty resources for upcoming LUMA exhibits - [italics] Misericordia: Together We Celebrate; Peter Gelker: Whirligigs; and Wayang: The Art of Indonesian Puppetry.

Program Description: Artifacts and works of art provide inspiration and fresh points of entry into the reflection activities that are critical for students' learning experience at LUC. In this session, participants will explore Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA) exhibits and the May Weber Collection as a resource for reflection across the disciplines. These collections and exhibits are available to faculty as teaching and learning resources, both in the gallery setting as well as in the classroom as visiting objects or online images. Session participants will engage in inquiry-based activities that support reflection on social justice themes, such as diversity and difference; identity and community; and giving and receiving. Participants will have the opportunity to consider what connections they can make between their course materials and the rich collections and exhibits offered on campus, opening up their students to this engaging avenue for reflection.

Developing Principled Leaders, One Student at a Time: Applying Ignatian Pedagogy to Faculty-Student Mentoring
Learning Outcomes Participants in this session will:
  • Discuss a range of faculty (or staff)/student mentoring opportunities, addressing both best practices and challenges in effective mentoring.
  • Consider how the mentoring experience may adapt Ignatian pedagogy to support a student's formation as a principled leader.
  • Provide suggestions for reflective self-assessment for the faculty or staff member engaged in the mentoring experience.

Program Description: Faculty and staff mentors teach new skills, offer personal guidance, and act as role models for their students. Indeed, building a meaningful mentor relationship may be one of the most transformative experiences possible during a student’s university career. One-on-one mentoring represents an opportunity for Jesuit university faculty and staff to engage in the knowledge-sharing partnership between student and instructor supported by Jesuit education.This session outlines a range of faculty/staff-student mentoring opportunities and considers how these experiences may purposefully use Ignatian pedagogy to support a student’s formation as a principled leader.

Mobilizing for Justice (1): Promises and Pitfalls of a Politically Engaged Classroom
Session Outcomes: (Donoghue)

1.  Faculty will discuss how making their teaching relevant to the current state of American racial relations can become politically controversial despite adhering to best disciplinary/pedagogical methods and practices.

2.  Faculty will brainstorm on best disciplinary/pedagogical practices in relation to the "post-truth" paradigm of contemporary American political culture.

Session Description: (Donoghue)

I will discuss how my efforts to recruit African American students for my Hist 300: Slavery and Abolition: Then and Now course became a target for right-wing attempts to shame/silence/intimidate faculty via on-line exposes on conservative sites.  Following this targeting, my name was placed on the “Professor     Watchlist.”  I will also discuss the course itself and how it struggles against the “violence of forgetting” in regard to slavery’s racist (both structural and overt) legacies in contemporary America. Part of the talk will also focus on how the acceleration of America’s decline into a ‘post-truth’ political culture, a decline brought on by the Trump campaign, has intensified the link between the violence of forgetting and political violence (rhetorical and physical) itself.

Session Outcomes: (Johnson)

1.  Discuss the potential benefits and costs of addressing subjects of contemporary political controversy in class.

2,  Faculty will consider different ways to reconcile strong commitments to particular causes with openness and respect for different opinions.

Session Description: Johnson

 I will share some of my experiences of tackling subjects such as climate change, immigration policy, and economic questions that are the subjects of both academic inquiry and of contemporary politics.  On the one hand, these questions are important in their own right, and their incorporation underscores the relevance of history and other disciplines.  On the other hand, discussing them can risk simply activating pre-existing beliefs and commitments and alienating students whose views may be at odds with those of a professor or the majority of their classmates.

Learning Outcomes Participants in this session will: 
  • Articulate the theory and research on learning portfolios as it relates to Ignatian Pedagogy.
  • Identify learning portfolio best practices in curricular integration.

This session will capture the movement and synergy built around learning portfolios now nationally and bring it to Loyola locally. This session focuses on two primary goals: 1) understanding the theory and research behind learning portfolios as it relates to Ignatian Pedagogy and 2) practical application on integrating learning portfolios into curriculum.

Learning Outcomes Participants in this session will:
  • Be able to identify three themes from Catholic Social Teaching (CST) their subject material touches on.

Effective Practices for Moving from On-ground to Online Teaching

With the rapid growth and popularity of online learning, it’s becoming common place for faculty to convert their on-ground course into an online format.  It’s easy, right?  Simply move your PowerPoints, videos, and documents into your learning management system.  We hope you will agree that the re-design process is more complicated and engagement is critical to success.  This session will focus on adapting interactivity and engagement inherent in most on-ground courses into an online course.

Use of Gamification to Enhance Student Learning: Lessons Learned

Session Objectives:

  1. Define the “flipped classroom” approach to face-to-face instruction.
  2. Describe gamification as a strategy to enhance classroom learning.
  3. Discuss the design and development of the gamified learning environment.
  4. Identify lessons learned from student evaluation and instructor experience in engaging the students through the use of gamification. 

Session Description:

Gamification is an instructional approach that facilitates learning and encourages motivation through the use of game elements, game mechanics, and game-based thinking. Gamification integrates elements from games such as earning points, overcoming a challenge, or receiving badges for accomplishing a task. Gamification also engages the learner in a unique way to further learning outside the classroom. This workshop will review gamification strategies that were used to support out-of-class learning in a flipped classroom approach for a sophomore community health nursing course. Course assignments and corresponding gamification elements will be discussed. Student use, impact on learning and administration of the gamification elements will be presented. Lessons learned from course modification, implementation, evaluation and ongoing development will be identified as well as next steps in the process of using gamification strategies in future course development.
