P3 and ACUE: Growing a Campus Culture of Teaching and Learning
The Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) partnered with the P3 Spring 2017 through Spring 2023 to deliver high quality pedagogical training to Rutgers - Newark faculty, staff, and graduate students. ACUE and the P3 Collaboratory continue to share a mission of supporting faculty, staff, and future faculty/staff in deepening their skills in and understanding of teaching and learning.
ANCHORING HIGHER EDUCATION CONFERENCE
The Anchoring Higher Ed Conference is a biennial, daylong campus convening focused on teaching and learning innovation in higher education. Our focus is on producing transformative knowledge and collectivities with the purpose of contributing to the long-term success of young people at Rutgers-Newark and in the greater Newark community. We want to bring the latest in the science of learning to our campus and community, with an eye toward experimentation and collaboration and an understanding of the role of higher education in dismantling systems of disadvantage.
THE CHANCELLOR'S CONFERENCE ON THE NEW PROFESSORIATE
In October 2016, The Chancellor’s Conference on the New Professoriate: Tenure, Diversity and Engagement brought together national thought leaders and Rutgers University-Newark faculty to engage in the difficult conversations facing higher education and our academic community. Our student body has outpaced the changing demographics across the U.S. The extraordinarily diverse student body of Rutgers University-Newark reflects the complex intersectional landscape of heritage, language, race and ethnicity, class, sexuality, faith traditions, and more. And we must meet the promise that our students and our community demand from us.
ADVANCED THEORY AND PRACTICE OF TEACHING COURSE
Advanced Theory & Practice is a for-credit graduate-level course designed to prepare doctoral students for the rigors of college teaching. With a rigorous trans-substantive approach to instructional development, we work to familiarize future faculty with the latest science on cognition and learning psychology. Students in the course develop concrete skills, teaching strategies, and professional preparation that can be incorporated into any course, at any time.
STUDENT BELONGING INSTITUTE
The P3 Collaboratory at Rutgers-Newark is launching The Student Belonging Institute for faculty interested in learning about and implementing evidence-informed teaching strategies that improve students’ classroom experiences and course outcomes. By participating in this community of practice, faculty will build expertise in inclusive teaching practices that foster successful outcomes for students of all backgrounds at Rutgers-Newark.
DIFFICULT DIALOGUES WORKSHOP
Learn how to craft questions that foster dialogue rather than divisiveness, how to handle disruptions when the outside world breaks into classrooms, and foster a classroom space that promotes trust, connection and curiosity across differences of core identities, values, and world views.
SMARTeaching: A SERIES ON FACULTY DEVELOPMENT
The Success Made for All: Revitalizing Teaching (SMART) series is designed to connect you to available campus resources, introduce you to the latest research on teaching, learning, and neurodevelopment, prepare you for challenges you may confront in the classroom, and introduce you to innovative ways that you can help prepare all of your students for success.
The SMARTeaching workshops are the perfect way to ensure that faculty at Rutgers-Newark and graduate students preparing for a career in academia are working SMARTer toward our collective student success goals!
COURSE DEVELOPMENT GRANT
In partnership with the Office of the Chancellor at RU-N, the P3 Collaboratory leveraged external grants to support pedagogical innovation and pedagogical research. In 2019, with the support of the Lumina Fund for Racial Justice and Equity, Rutgers-Newark awarded course development grants for RU-N faculty to craft new, or redesign existing, courses that incorporated high impact pedagogical practices proven to improve student learning outcomes.
THE McCAMMON METHOD (RETHINKING THE FLIPPED CLASSROOM)
