  • Welcome and introduction (8:30-8:40) - Jeff Johnston

  • Break (9:40-9:50)

  • Working on dilemmas from the affective domain (9:50-11:30)- Cathy Manduca & Jeff Johnston

    This part of the workshop introduces the use of dilemmas as a tool for engaging faculty in discussions of the affective domain in their teaching. First we will spend time discussing and writing solutions to dilemmas that involve the affective domain. We will then reflect on our experiences with the dilemmas and explore how they might be used at our home institutions.

  • Interactive summary of self reflection exercise (11:30-12:00) - Ed Nuhfer

    In the final part of this workshop, Ed Nuhfer will explore how the affective domain directs the choices and actions of students, teachers and faculty developers and why measures of affect should be a part of assessment.
