Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program
See below for a list of certificate series workshops that will be offered this semester. Individual workshops will be conducted via Zoom from 1:00-2:30 pm on the noted dates. For those that participated in this certificate series last year but did not complete the certificate, you can earn digital credentials from the 2020-21 academic year and combine them with credentials from the previous year to earn the certificate. Note that you only need to complete 3 microcredentials to earn the certificate. There is currently no deadline for doing this.

Creating a Student-Centered Learning Environment
Students learn best where they can be authentic, speak openly, and construct new knowledge through meaningful dialogue. Establishing an environment like this starts before the first day of class, with a carefully crafted syllabus, and it continues with intentional approaches to connecting with students, building an inclusive community, and making the content relevant to the students. In this workshop, participants will learn about syllabus design, inclusive excellence, and relating content to the real world.
Student Motivation in the Classroom & Beyond
While extrinsic motivators, like grades, tend to be the focus for most students, we as educators can create a learning environment for student that supports their intrinsic motivation. In this workshop, we will present tangible strategies for enhancing student motivation that are based in self-determination theory.
Promoting Academic Integrity
Encouraging academic integrity in the classroom goes beyond establishing hard and fast rules in the syllabus. Open dialogue about the principles of learning are the foundation for helping students understand the why behind the institutions policies regarding academic honesty. In the workshop, practical strategies for encouraging academic integrity will be presented, along with specific monitoring tools.
