2023 Spring Faculty Institute
Moving to Research 2
Bowie State University aspires to step up and move in the Carnegie Classification as a Research 2 (R2) institution. This session will focus on starting a conversation on how to bring a systemic change to our existing system without losing our strengths in order to race towards R2 classification. We will host a panel of faculty from other minority serving institutions who have achieved R2 status.
Though we often discuss student success in terms of what students are (and are not) doing in their courses, the goal is to have conversations about how to review and potentially revise teaching practices, courses, and curriculum to support scaffolding student success in the classroom but also in the world. In this breakout session, we will focus specifically on defining student success, what we are doing well in the areas we define, and how we can improve.
DEI: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
As BSU enrolls more new students than any time in its history, what are we practicing as educators to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion on our campus? What strategies or initiatives can we adopt so all of our students are supported and have a strong sense of belonging? During this breakout session we will collaborate to learn from one another by sharing how we practice inclusion and equity in our courses, providing feedback on BSU’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Plan, developing recommendations for communicating inclusiveness to our students, and fostering ideas for how we can contribute to equity and inclusion for all at BSU.

High Impact Teaching: Multiple Modalities
The COVID-19 pandemic fundamentally changed how both teachers and students interact with existing learning tools in higher education. In our session, we will be asking how to update our toolbox to reflect those changes and redefine student engagement. Instead of returning to “normal”, we ask that you consider how the new circumstances provide a ripe ground for innovation in teaching and learning that creates a High Impact on student learning outcomes. Come to this session to get new ideas about how to engage your students by using new and old pedagogical strategies and instructional technology.
