Most institutions have multiple ways of assisting students academically, including professor's office hours, supplemental instruction, and tutoring centers. The challenge that professors and tutoring centers typically face is a lack of usage from students. In this session, you will hear two-year college students' reasons for attending or not attending tutorials in mathematics along with their solutions to encourage more students to attend these valuable sessions.
When is the last time you were able to fully engage a class of over twenty students in a meaningful, lively, and substantive discussion that involved more than the same 3-4 actively involved students? Whether this is an issue in your classroom or not, find out how using Google Jam Board can bring color, creativity, and conversation to your classes in a simple, fun way that also provides a record of your class discussions.
Join Chana Etengoff, Ph.D., Chair of Adelphi University’s Academic Integrity Committee, as she delves into the academic integrity implications of advancing artificial intelligence systems, such as ChatGPT. This presentation will explore the major policy and ethics debates of using AI checkers as the primary method of identifying students’ original work. Further expanding the scope of the debate, the webinar will additionally focus on the importance of coupling AI detection efforts with campus integrity values, faculty judgment and contextual understanding, as well as scaffolded assignments and drafts.
AI, such as ChatGPT, provides an opportunity to improve a syllabus - as well as making a syllabus easier to create. While there is usually some institutionally required wording on a syllabus there is also a lot of opportunity to create a syllabus how we want. Too often it is easier to simply reuse a syllabus with minor updates as necessary. The syllabus though is usually our first contact with students and we can make this first contact more effective via using AI. AI allows us to make edits in a way that is a lot easier than it was in the recent past.

“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” -Thomas Edison
As math instructors, we know that everything we teach has a process. When we are teaching, we start with step 1 and work our way to the solution. Then we check the work. While doing this, we often get the question, “why do I need this?” or “why do I have to take this?” We often hear how some have always struggled and will never understand. But do we ever teach students that sometimes failure is part of the process? This session will discuss the benefit of failure in the classroom setting and the incorporation of personal experience with failure into the teaching process.
How can we create a truly inclusive and equitable learning environment in higher education? In this session, we will delve into the concept of intersectionality and its significance in fostering inclusive classrooms. Together, we will explore how different social identities, such as race, gender, sexuality, and class, intersect and influence individuals' experiences and social dynamics. By understanding these intersections, we can develop a comprehensive framework for teaching that honors the complexity of our students' lives and identities.
