T3 Teaching Workshops


T3 Teaching Workshops

San José State University School of Information T3 (Teaching Tips & Techniques) Series 

The T3 Series, developed in response to the recommendations that were made in the 2012 iSchool Faculty Technology Use Survey Report, offers faculty training in key areas. The topics were selected from the suggestions made by faculty, and the sessions will be led by colleagues and other professionals who have expertise in the use of existing services and technologies. Plan to join one or more of the T3 Series sessions. All sessions are recorded and available in the T3 Archive located in the Canvas Faculty site.

Instructional Expectations for All Faculty

iSchool Teaching Requirement
In order to ensure that all iSchool teaching faculty keep up their technology skills and provide our students with the best online experience, all faculty who want to continue to teach for the iSchool will be required to attend at least one of the training sessions each semester — either live or via the recording. We will ask participants of both the live and recorded sessions to complete a feedback form as proof of attending.  You may also complete the T3 requirement by viewing any of the previous sessions that are located in the T3 Archive on the Canvas iSchool Faculty site (and completing a feedback form as proof of attending.)

iSchool T3 Substitution Policy: Each faculty member is required to participate in one of the T3 sessions developed and offered by the iSchool each term. Credit for participation is for T3 sessions only. There are many other workshops beneficial to teaching and learning, and faculty are encouraged to participate in these supplemental sessions without T3 credit. 

T3 Sessions

Spring 2020

Wednesday, February 19 @ 11 am PT

Session Title: How and Why to Give Effective Feedback through ROCK-SOLID Coaching​

Zoom Link: https://sjsu.zoom.us/j/384403010

Presenter: David Leasure, Head4Knowledge.com

David Leasure has been a life-long student of learning, a computer scientist specializing in artificial intelligence, learning researcher, and provost at multiple online universities. In his current position, he is devoted to Bloom’s principle that all people can learn in the right circumstances and with the proper support. He researches, writes, and coaches others on learning, facilitating, and personal development. He is co-author of the Professional’s Guide to Self-Growth. Leasure’s popular work can be found at Head4Knowledge.com and his research on ResearchGate.com.

Overview: When do we accept and act on feedback? Research shows that the “deficit model” of feedback, where someone lists our failings doesn’t work. Instead, it triggers our mental and emotional defenses. A different model, based on strengths and opportunities, can avoid triggering our defenses. To use it well, we need to shift to a caring coaching. Join Dr. David Leasure for this webinar on the practice of coaching using the model, ROCK-SOLID. The webinar will engage you with familiar scenarios that students experience and to try your hand at developing feedback. We will walk through the method and its support from neuroscience.
