10 10 This workshop is the core of many faculty development opportunities that seeks to have the greatest impact possible upon student learning. From HCC Strategic Plan : “Helping students achieve their fullest potential requires an institution’s commitment to support them in reaching their educational and career goals. HCC, an Achieving the Dream college, will continue to invest significant time and resources toward improving student learning. Through innovative methods of course delivery, teaching practices, and support services, our students will progress through their education, career and personal goals as we provide the support leading to student learning.” HCC C ENTER for TLE TL 1071 – Implementing Learner-centered Teaching for Student Success HCC Goal: Student Learning

13 13 As HCC works to achieve its vision, the institution utilizes several critical indicators to measure the plan of action and chart progress. Institutional targets are defined on an annual basis in order to report on each of the six goal areas to achieve our vision: student learning, effective leadership, resource development and engagement, global perspective, effective communication, and accountability and strategic decision-making. An indicator for student success specifically related to teaching and learning is student engagement as defined by the Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) educational research organization 1. Academic challenge 2. Active and collaborative learning 3. Faculty-student interaction 4. Support for learning 5. Student effort. Other indicators (see page 32 of HCC Strategic Plan ) are: enrollment, retention rates, transfer rates, and job placement rates. The curriculum for each program sponsored by HCC Center for TLE focuses on preparing faculty to effectively integrate CCSSE’s effective educational practices into a learner-centered teaching environment.

HCC C ENTER for TLE TL 1071 – Implementing Learner-centered Teaching for Student Success Pre-workshop Prep Tasks:

15 Awareness of Oneself Passage from: The Courage to Teach by Parker Palmer “ Teaching, like any truly human activity, emerges from one’s inwardness, for better or worse. As I teach, I project the conditions of my soul onto my students, my subject, and our way of being together. The entanglements I experience in the classroom are often no more or no less than the convulsions of my inner life. Viewed from this angle, teaching holds a mirror to the end of my soul. If I am willing to look in that mirror and not run from what I see, I have a chance to gain self-knowledge – and knowing myself is as crucial to good teaching as knowing my students and my subject. In fact, knowing my students and knowing my subject depends heavily on self-knowledge. When I do not know myself, I cannot know who my students are. I will see them through a glass - darkly, in the shadows of my own unexamined life; and when I cannot see them clearly, I cannot teach them well.” 15 HCC C ENTER for TLE TL 1071 – Implementing Learner-centered Teaching for Student Success
