  • How Can I Engage the Emotions of My Students to Maximize Learning?
    Faculty tend to separate emotions from the teaching and learning that takes place in classes. Many have bought into a well-established tradition that college instruction should be dry, dusty, and academic in order to be authentic. But recent research shows that emotions have a strong impact on cognition. Instead of excluding emotion from the classroom, instructors would do well to acknowledge and take advantage of the impact emotions have on students’ ability to learn new material. Drawing on a proposed addition of Emotional Presence to the Community of Inquiry Framework, examine why and how emotions can increase learning and retention. Acquire practical strategies to intentionally embrace the opportunities emotions offer to enhance deep and meaningful learning in in-person and online classes.
  • What Behavioral Changes Can I Make to Inspire Enthusiasm in My Classroom?
    Most faculty have known instructors who are deeply inspiring. They bring a passion for their content, coupled with a strong desire to impart that passion, that ignites student interest and learning in their classes. By contrast, it is easy to think of professors who seem to have so little interest in their own lectures that they deaden enthusiasm for learning just by their lackluster presentation methods. Does this mean that in order to be an effective instructor, one must be a dynamic and charismatic public speaker? Thankfully, no. Explore the phenomena of emotional contagion and affective crossover, both rooted in the emerging science of emotion, to develop techniques that enable faculty to inspire students, foster enthusiasm, and motivate learning.
  • How Can I Use Technology to Foster the Emotional Processing of Course Content?
    There is increasing evidence to suggest that emotions play a large part in how people learn. Recent research shows that emotion and cognition are intricately related. It is becoming more and more important to actively stimulate and engage the emotional responses of students to help them learn deeply and meaningfully. Explore how streaming media, audio performances and presentations, and virtual conferencing tools can facilitate emotional presence in in-person and online classes. The intentional application of technology can capture an interaction with the content to develop students’ emotional responses to content which in turn, fosters deeper understanding and learning of important concepts and ideas.
