Summer 2018 Programming
Intro to SAIL Workshops
This summer, we are offering a two-part workshop series to provide educators with solid grounding in, and potential applications of SAIL.
Part 1: Vision, Goals, and You
This workshop (the first of a two-part series) provides participants with a basic introduction to what SAIL is, including an overview of the framework, goals for learners, and the vision for a university-wide rollout.
Recommended for: Educators who are new to SAIL
Part 2: Putting It into Action
This workshop (the second of a two-part series) provides participants with guidance on how to map learning opportunities (activities such as programs, events, research, service, employment, co-op, and courses) to the SAIL framework in support of SAIL goals for learners. This includes identifying the level of engagement, level of exposure to the five dimensions, and relevant skills.
Recommended for: Educators who have participated in Intro to SAIL Workshop Part 1 or another SAIL session
These workshops dive deeper into specific topics related to SAIL.
Engaging the Professional and Personal Effectiveness Dimension in SAIL
Through this discussion-based session, explore the Professional and Personal Effectiveness dimension of the SAIL framework, including what it looks like in practice and how educators can support learner development in this area. Participants will reflect on how this dimension intersects with their own domain and what kinds of learning experiences could integrate Professional and Personal Effectiveness with domain learning. This session will be co-facilitated with Career Development.
Recommended for: Educators interested in fostering Professional and Personal Effectiveness
Sharing Your Opportunities with Learners
This hands-on workshop equips participants with ideas for making learners aware of opportunities, as well as support and guidance for entering and publishing learning opportunities through the SAIL platform. Participants will see examples of how SAIL opportunities have been shared with learners and will receive guidance on entering or updating opportunities through the educator portal.
Recommended for: Educators who have an opportunity that is ready to be published (or has already been published) through the SAIL platform
Cultivating Self-Authorship with Your Learners
Research on self-authorship describes the ways in which we can become increasingly sophisticated over time in how we relate to: (1) knowledge itself, (2) our own identity, and (3) relationships with others. Specific kinds of learning experiences stimulate this development, and educators can facilitate these experiences through effective challenges and support. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to explain the process and value of self-authorship to learners and implement practical methods for cultivating it in the learners with whom they work.
Recommended for: Educators interested in the power of self-authorship
Integrating the Social Consciousness and Commitment Dimension in SAIL
Through this discussion-based session, explore the Social Consciousness and Commitment (Civic) dimension of the SAIL framework, including what it looks like in practice and how educators can support learner development in this area. Participants will reflect on how this dimension intersects with their own domain and what kinds of learning experiences could integrate Civic learning with domain learning. This session will be co-facilitated by Service-Learning.
Recommended for: Educators interested in fostering Social Consciousness and Commitment
These are meant to be a collegial exchange of ideas for engaging with SAIL in colleges, departments, programs, centers, and offices across campus. Connect with other educators to ask questions, learn about examples of how SAIL is being integrated, and brainstorm potential collaborations.
Educator exchanges are recommended for: Educators who have participated in Intro to SAIL Workshops Parts 1 & 2, a full-day SAIL Institute, the SAIL: Learning Everywhere event, or in the SAIL Ambassador Program and who are interested in discussing the SAIL framework with colleagues from across the University.
Educator Exchange: Collaboration
This educator exchange focuses on collaborations across different units and roles at Northeastern. Lunch will be provided.
Educator Exchange: Ecosystem
This educator exchange focuses on engaging the ecosystem without using the SAIL technology platforms. Lunch will be provided.
Educator Exchange: Global Mindset
This educator exchange focuses on the Global Mindset dimension of the SAIL framework.
Educator Exchange: Well-Being
This educator exchange focuses on integrating skills of the Well-Bring dimension in the SAIL framework into learning opportunities. Lunch will be provided.
