11am in the Faculty Center for Teaching Excellence
Mary Murphy from the Indiana University department of psychological and brain sciences, will return to ISU to present her latest research with strong student success implications for an event sponsored by the Office of Student Success and the ISU Student Success Council.
The talk focuses on What We Say Matters: New Research on How Student Performance Feedback Can Impact Their Future Effort.
Murphy is the principal investigator, Mind and Identity in Context Lab, and an external consultant for the ISU First-in-the-World Grant.
Murphy’s research is on how student feedback on assignments impacts their future effort and performance. She and her team developed and field tested a feedback intervention that shows promise for stimulating students to greater effort, rather than what sometimes happens, self-doubt about their capability to master content and for some, dropping a class or underperforming in the course.
Murphy will also discuss preliminary results from a similar study focused on students who are placed on academic probation and ways in which changes to probation letter wording and/or similar communication can be used to trigger higher performance and greater positive outcomes.

Emerging Technologies librarian Heather Rayl has had a busy summer, helping a Communication Department team convert the Comm 101 textbook into an Open Education Resource text.
She also maintains a guide to OER information at Open Educational Resources.
As more faculty become aware of the OER movement, workshops are being provided to spread the info.
The next workshop will be held Tuesday September 20, 2016 in the Faculty Center for Teaching Excellence, Library room 103, 3-4pm.
Promo: Are you frustrated with your textbook? Are you looking for ways to inject more custom materials into your class? Then Open Educational Resources might be the answer for you! Stop by the Faculty Center for Teaching Excellence for a workshop on what OERs are, how to find them, and maybe even earn some money on the side just for converting your class! Light refreshments will be served.
For more information, contact Heather.Rayl@indstate.edu or call (812) 237-2150

Two of our very own Cunningham Memorial Library personnel recently received prestigious awards during the Bayh College of Education’s Honor Day Convocation.
Librarian Susan Frey received the J. Fred Swalls Award in School Administration. This award, established in 1979 by members of the faculty in honor of Dr. Swalls, is awarded to a deserving student in the School Administration Ph.D. program.
Student Assistant Bryce Brocar was awarded the Elisha A. Bourne Scholarship. The award, established in 2006 by a gift from the estate of James Elrod in memory of his grandfather Elisha A. Bourne, is awarded to juniors who plan to teach and reside in Indiana. Upon completion of requisite courses with the required level of success, Bryce was also admitted to the Becoming a Complete Professional program.

Colleen Haas, a full-time instructor of African and African American Studies, has been chosen as a Faculty Fellow in the Faculty Center for Teaching Excellence to develop and implement a Multicultural Curriculum Learning Community at Indiana State.
The Multicultural Curriculum Learning Community will offer the opportunity for faculty to transform existing courses or develop new course content relative to diversity, inclusiveness and global societal perspectives gained from the sessions provided. An announcement calling for participants will be coming soon.
Haas received her bachelor’s degree from The College of St. Catherine in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1983. She earned her master’s (2005) degree and doctorate (2010) in ethnomusicology from Indiana University. Haas spent 12 months researching in Brazil as a Fulbright scholar in 2006. She joined the Indiana State faculty in 2011. Last week, Haas was recognized with the Community-Based Learning and Scholarship Award during Indiana State University’s Faculty Recognition Banquet.
Edith Campbell, an assistant reference and instruction librarian at Cunningham Memorial Library, will assist with the initiative. She received a bachelor’s degree from the University of Cincinnati and master’s degree from Indiana University. She will serve the initiative as a faculty affiliate via the Faculty Center for Teaching Excellence.
“Colleen brings an impressive depth of knowledge, experiences, and passion to this initiative,” said Beth Whitaker, director of the Faculty Center for Teaching Excellence. “I am confident that her informed background and collaborative spirit will allow her to lead the new learning community in a highly productive fashion. Edi also comes to this initiative with expertise and energy. She will be assisting in research efforts and program coordination. Under the guidance of these two individuals, I am certain this learning community will afford participants a rewarding opportunity to grow and learn together as they explore the diverse aspects of multicultural curriculum.”
