To ensure the success of every student who is pursuing their academic goals, the Student Experience Project (SEP) uses innovative, research-based practices to build equitable learning environments and instill a sense of belonging in students on campuses across the nation. Recommendations from the SEP include ideas to increase belonging, practices to foster academic encouragement and growth mindset, and ways to cultivate a supportive and inclusive classroom. Factors affecting the implementation of these practices may include instructor hesitancy, course size, time constraints, and diverse student populations. This webinar presents practices and ideas that have been successfully implemented in our biology course and are applicable to both face-to-face and online delivery.
Incorporating an experience points system into classrooms provides an opportunity for students to analyze their behaviors in ways that are specific to their current learning experiences. For educators, it alleviates some of the challenges involved in classroom management and the question of whether classroom management practices (such as attendance, participation, or late work) can or should impact students' grades in a course. In this webinar, participants explore the experience point approach to classroom management and discuss its benefits and challenges. Finally, participants are provided with three template activities to get started with the experience point approach to classroom management.
Open Education Resources (OERs) provide opportunities for institutions and students to save significant amounts of money. Beyond the money, OERs provide teachers the opportunity to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. This webinar provides leaders with a framework on how to establish OERs at an institutional level. It provides methods for planning, designing, implementing, and evaluating the OER strategy. This webinar also documents successes and shares lessons learned.
What if you could visually identify which chapter and Bloom’s taxonomy level your students were struggling with? What if you could use that information to clearly and visually show your students the areas of improvement? This webinar provides tools to help you transform your digital exam and quiz data into a very effective student report. This report not only improves student learning, but also provides a great tool for your own assessment.
This webinar introduces best practices for integrating guided emotional management tools into curriculum, classroom, and program development to assist students with time management as they transition into the higher education setting.

Participants learn how to integrate accommodations into virtual learning environments as well as inclusive student engagement practices to help reduce or remove barriers.
This webinar is aimed at understanding the issues that students face in a peri-post pandemic period. The facilitator works toward laying down a foundation of terms and topics aimed at assisting educators at all levels to create a welcoming and safe classroom for students to help promote attendance, learning, and self-awareness.

The presenter provides a list of ways in which the attendees can create a safe space and where or how they can intervene in difficult situations.
Our traditional systems of grading tend to reward behavior rather than knowledge, to be demotivating, and to demand that instructors perform endless workarounds to improve student outcomes. In this webinar, the presenters introduce an approach to grading that aims to equitably assess student learning and motivate student persistence. Presenters share details on grading strategies, preliminary results, and learning from implementation. They also provide a sample alternative assessment tool.
Learners will have the option to earn a certificate of attendance or a certificate with CEUs upon completion of the webinar. To earn a certificate with CEUs, the learner must successfully pass the learning assessment with a score of 80% or higher. All learners must complete the webinar evaluation to earn credentials.
The duration of this webinar is one hour, which equates to 0.1 Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
