Join us for this Guest Lecture that focuses on cyber bullying. Cyber bullying, or electronic bullying, refers to bullying that occurs through email, over instant messaging, in a chat room, on a Web page, or through digital images or messages sent to a cellular phone. Close to 20 percent of almost 4,000 middle school individuals in one survey indicated that they had been cyber bullied in the two months prior to completing the survey. The effects of cyber bullying are magnified relative to traditional bullying, with adolescents who are cyber bullied experiencing heightened levels of anxiety and depression, lower levels of self-esteem, and a higher number of school absences. Information related to prevention and intervention will also be discussed in this Guest Lecture. Wednesday, March 16, 11am ET

Student Engagement in Introductory Psychology: The Best of Active Learning & Critical Thinking Activities! Karen Huffman, Palomar College

Beginning in ancient times, folk wisdom and philosophy have told us that the best learning takes place when students are fully engaged. And, as college instructors, we’ve all experienced times when students sit up a little straighter in their seats. Then, at the magical moment when they “get it,” you can almost see a little light bulb lighting up above their heads. How can we have more of these “light-bulb moments”? What are the best techniques for student engagement? Can we measure the results? How can we find time for student engagement, active learning, and critical thinking, while still covering all the necessary content? This Guest Lecture is designed to explore and demonstrate answers to these questions. Join Karen Huffman as she “demonstrates” five to seven sure-fire techniques that produce quantifiable results. Please come prepared to share your own insights, activities, and expertise. Tuesday, March 29, 11am ET Tuesday, April 5, 4pm ET 13

Transforming Vocabulary and Grammar Practice Exercises into Authentic Communicative Practice Silvia Sobral, Brown University

Confidence Matters When it Comes to Student Learning: Findings of a National Efficacy Study on Improving Learning Outcomes with Technology Petra Steriti, John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

Wiley has recently concluded some seminal research on the dynamics of teaching and learning. One area of focus has been gathering and validating insights about how students study and learn. This includes research around how we can help students become more confident learners, more effective with the time they spend studying, and more engaged in the classroom, which will all ultimately lead to improved outcomes. Additionally, the results of a multi-faceted national efficacy study conducted during the 2009–2010 school year show that students using WileyPLUS improved their learning outcome by approximately a full letter grade in two-year programs and approximately one half of a letter grade in four-year programs on the equivalent of a final exam. The study also shows that WileyPLUS helps the least-prepared students catch up to the rest of the students in the course. In effect, the gap between the least-prepared and average students is narrower after completing a course in which students chose to use WileyPLUS. Please join Petra Steriti for this Guest Lecture as she shares these extensive research findings with you. Tuesday, March 22, 11am ET Wednesday, March 30, 3pm ET

Join Siliva Sobral for this Guest Lecture as she presents a quick review of the features of communicative practice. Then, prepare to dive into an examination of some types of exercises commonly found in foreign language instructional materials, as well as explore simple modifications to make them truly communicative.
