@AdjunctChat RT @JeffreyKeefer: Today’s #AdjunctChat topic is “What are you doing this year to keep your teaching fresh?” http://t.co/9e2x00ODhJ 9/2/2014 16:01
@JeffreyKeefer Please introduce yourself and mention what you teach #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:02
@N1academy @JeffreyKeefer @josh_boldt @cpfa_forum @LitProfSuz #AdjunctChat I chose 2 teach HAMLET in “Playwriting” class and then my college closed. 9/2/2014 16:03
@JeffreyKeefer @ShaneAClark One always has to start somewhere! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:03
@JeffreyKeefer @N1academy Oh goodness, how awful #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:04
@JeffreyKeefer I am teaching a graduate research course that begins again tonight #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:04
@JeffreyKeefer @N1academy Are you teaching at all this term? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:05
@N1academy @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat For a very truthful (though difficult) review of this crisis, please visit: http://t.co/kJaZ58kei1 9/2/2014 16:07
@ProfessorEx74 RT @N1academy: @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat For a very truthful (though difficult) review of this crisis, please visit: http://t.co/kJaZ58ke… 9/2/2014 16:07
@N1academy @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat — We will launch THOUGHTRAVE on http://t.co/6tCUs8V89B this month; my term as Dean will end September 30th. 9/2/2014 16:08
@JeffreyKeefer @kristine_tx Sounds like a great thing for your learners #AdjunctChat @AdjunctNation @VanessaVaile @darthur62 9/2/2014 16:08
@JeffreyKeefer @kristine_tx How are you planning to focus more on student engagement via distance? #AdjunctChat @AdjunctNation @VanessaVaile @darthur62 9/2/2014 16:08
@JeffreyKeefer @N1academy Wow, seems challenging in the least #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:10
@JeffreyKeefer @N1academy Exciting plans ahead; onward and upward! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:10
@JeffreyKeefer @N1academy Exciting plans ahead; onward and upward! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:10
@JeffreyKeefer Seems that some people posted throughout the day, so will comment and share those posts as well #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:11
@JeffreyKeefer I am going to begin working though the questions and we can see what sorts of discussions occur, either now or later in the day #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:12
@JeffreyKeefer Q1 What are you teaching in the fall semester? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:12
@N1academy @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat — I may be completely done with higher education (again); left the first time in 2011. 9/2/2014 16:12
@JeffreyKeefer A1 I am teaching 2 sections of a graduate research course, each one meeting twice a week for 3 hours F2F each #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:13
@AdjunctChat RT @JeffreyKeefer: Q1 What are you teaching in the fall semester? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:13
@JeffreyKeefer @N1academy What brought you back into HE since then? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:13
@JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga Great; will see you after your meeting and the synchronous #AdjunctChat @Melissa_Venable @danieljbrunson @SponchPhD 9/2/2014 16:14
@JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga However,many may still be away, OR at least busily starting class! #AdjunctChat @Melissa_Venable @danieljbrunson @SponchPhD 9/2/2014 16:15
@JeffreyKeefer @N1academy Thanks for the reply on the site http://t.co/8ovnvNL5NX #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:17
@JeffreyKeefer @N1academy How about talking about what this experience is like closing a college? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:17
@JeffreyKeefer @N1academy In some ways, that experience is just the opposite of today’s planned #AdjunctChat topic, and may make a valuable contrast. 9/2/2014 16:18
@JeffreyKeefer @AndrewR_Physics Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the #AdjunctChat blog http://t.co/8ovnvNL5NX 9/2/2014 16:19
@JeffreyKeefer @AndrewR_Physics Too bad you could not join the synchronous session, I would like to hear more about your use of clickers #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:20
@JeffreyKeefer @AndrewR_Physics In some ways clickers seem a bit impersonal, though I have not used them or seen them done well #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:20
@JeffreyKeefer @AndrewR_Physics I have seen clickers used rather poorly, and that was my only hands-on experience #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:21
@JeffreyKeefer Q2 Have you taught this before? If so, how often? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:21
@JeffreyKeefer A2 I have taught this research course many times before, though am always looking to improve it #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:24
@JeffreyKeefer A2 I find many of my learners come to the course with . . . let’s just say . . . mixed experiences with it previously #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:24
@JeffreyKeefer Q3 Where do you look for new or different ideas to teach? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:25
@JeffreyKeefer Q3 Where do you look for new or different ideas to teach? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:25
@JeffreyKeefer A3 I look anyplace I can for new ideas, and even though today’s #AdjunctChat is a bit quiet, I usually find some really useful ones here. 9/2/2014 16:26
@AndrewR_Physics .@JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat I talk for 10 mins then set clicker Q. Students think/calc their own answer& click response anonymously 1/2 9/2/2014 16:26
@AndrewR_Physics @JeffreyKeefer #Adjunctchat Then students discuss & critique their answers with neighbours for a few mins. Then revote. *Usually* more right 9/2/2014 16:28
@JeffreyKeefer @AndrewR_Physics Ahh; what options for click types are there? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:28
@JeffreyKeefer Q4 What new things are you hoping to try in your courses this semester? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:29
@JeffreyKeefer @AndrewR_Physics Are these clickers devices you bring in, or are they available via smartphone? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:29
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Sorry I’m late. I teach tonight & with bad weather & slow computer took a while to get online. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer A4 I am planning to use Twitter more directly with my students #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:31
@JeffreyKeefer A4 I will ask them to find people who are working in their research areas #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:31
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @AndrewR_Physics I have decided to use index cards instead of clickers but my students like both. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:32
@JeffreyKeefer A4 I will also communicate more intentionally with my learners via Direct Tweets, something that makes phone texting obsolete #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:32
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Always glad to see you! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:32
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer That’s a great idea. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:32
@AndrewR_Physics @JeffreyKeefer #Adjunctchat Used to use Turning Point dedicated clicker system – more sophisticated – but cost $25-50 for clicker. Too much 9/2/2014 16:33
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I think lots of people are in your same boat today, so to speak! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:33
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I’m teaching speech presentation this semester. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:33
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @AndrewR_Physics I use index cards when I randomly assign groups; I write numbers and ask students to choose a card! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:33
@JeffreyKeefer @AndrewR_Physics Wow, that does sound clostly #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:34
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I’m going to try something I learned at uni retreat to assess level of knowledge of speech presentation. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:34
@AndrewR_Physics @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat I could use index cards, but Socrative does the counting for me #lazy Same principles! 9/2/2014 16:34
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer You have attributes that you ask students to categorize. Method of cat. will indicate level of knowledge of sub #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:35
@AndrewR_Physics @JeffreyKeefer #Adjunctchat there are still other systems where they charge a subscription per course to the student. Not acceptable to me! 9/2/2014 16:36
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Great! What level? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:36
@Comprof1 @AndrewR_Physics @JeffreyKeefer That’s why I use index cards. keep price down. I do it with students groups. #adjunctchat Preview Q on BLS. 9/2/2014 16:37
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Can you give an example? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:37
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer It’s a gateway course. Problem w/ variety of skills & speaking experience. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:38
@AndrewR_Physics @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer #Adjunctchat At prev uni ALL first year sci courses agreed to use them. We got deal on price & students happy 9/2/2014 16:38
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I’ll give them speech problems (too long, not able to hear speaker, no gestures) then have students categorize #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:40
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Ahh, interesting #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:40
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Ahh, interesting #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:40
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Students that use physical/simple characteristics ( voice, movement) as categories not knowledgable #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:41
@LitProfSuz #AdjunctChat Hi everyone. Wow, that was a fast summer! 9/2/2014 16:41
@JeffreyKeefer Today’s #AdjunctChat topic is “What are you doing this year to keep your teaching fresh?” http://t.co/8ovnvNL5NX 9/2/2014 16:41
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Students that use >sophisticated (audience problems, rhetoric, style) will have deeper understanding of speech #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:42
@JeffreyKeefer A4 I also hope my students will locate sources of evidence for questions they articulate, and then to ask them directly #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:42
@JeffreyKeefer Q5 How will you determine if they are successful? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:42
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Summer? What summer!?!?! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:43
@LitProfSuz #AdjunctChat I am teaching 2 new to me courses and 2 famik ar courses. I want to be more intentional @ formative assessments 9/2/2014 16:43
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Between my FT job and the two courses I taught, I did not see any time off at all. I know, balance . . . #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:43
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I choose one thing each semester to work on/try out. More and I get overwhelmed. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:44
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Perfect! That is related to Q5! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:45
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz I always start with outcomes, then design backwards. First what are goals/what I want them to be able to do. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:45
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 So your new thing this course is related to categorization, right? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:46
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I have been using @Trello heavily in the past 3 weeks (thank you!), and want to explore that with my students, too #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:47
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz New courses are tough b/c it takes long to develop outcomes Once I have good goals/outcomes, course comes together #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:47
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @LitProfSuz Wow, do I sense an instructional design process here!?!? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:47
@LitProfSuz #AdjunctChat A colleague & I will conduct a self-study of a new course. Thst should be interesting. 9/2/2014 16:48
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Correct. I’m going to try it 3 times this semester to see if learning is deeper. #adjunctchat 1st is tonight. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:48
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz My teaching training was based on experiential learning. This is also what I taught my ed students. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:49
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz That sounds interesting. What methodology will you be using? What is the goal of the study? #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:50
@JeffreyKeefer @JakeGrad @dpla Have not seen that resource before; can you talk about it? #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:51
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz It also helps when everything goes south in class (i.e tech outage) to know where you were headed. #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:52
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz Would love to hear more about it! #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:52
@JeffreyKeefer I will need to leave #AdjunctChat on time tonight as my course begins in an hour. 9/2/2014 16:53
@JakeGrad @JeffreyKeefer @dpla Sure. #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:53
@JeffreyKeefer For those in #AdjunctChat, please share a take-away from today . . . 9/2/2014 16:53
@JeffreyKeefer @JakeGrad @Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @AndrewR_Physics @N1academy Would you consider facilitating an #AdjunctChat this month or next? 9/2/2014 16:55
@JeffreyKeefer @JakeGrad @Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @AndrewR_Physics @N1academy We have some help for it here http://t.co/8FjD3Vg1WN #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:56

@JeffreyKeefer I also think an annual #AdjunctChat check-in for what process changes or new ideas to try out may make for an interesting upcoming chat 9/2/2014 16:57
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @JakeGrad @LitProfSuz @AndrewR_Physics @N1academy I’ll let you know. I’m teaching Tuesday evenings this semester #adjunctchat 9/2/2014 16:57
@LitProfSuz @Comprof1 #adjunctchat The course is to help w/ edTPA. Looking @ student perception & response to the support & effectiveness 9/2/2014 16:57
@JeffreyKeefer We are planning a 24 hour #AdjunctChat in October so as to reach all time zones! More info to come #AdjunctChat 9/2/2014 16:58
@JeffreyKeefer I need to run to class myself. Please continue chatting as the #AdjunctChat tag is always open. Will catch up with you all later. Thanks! 9/2/2014 16:59
