Our project gives university students hands on experience developing job descriptions, ads, job applications and interview guides, gives them the opportunity to review actual job applications and resumes, allows them to conduct actual job interviews and provide feedback to the participating high school student.
In this presentation, we will discuss the foundation of the collaboration, the initial steps, initiatives, and activities, and the future plans of COMM-IT. Initiatives and activities include the creation of the Digital Engagement Certificate, cross promotion of certificates and minors at the IT-Expo, a team taught UCForward course, addition of an IT introductory course into the Applied Communication Certificate and learning communities for Communication majors. With an interdisciplinary focus, faculty and staff worked together to create a summer joint recruitment effort of future Bearcats. Faculty have collaborated with each other in grant applications (both internal and external), research presentations, teaching workshops, and promotion of conferences, events, and workshops including WordCamp and IT-Expo. Future plans for COMM-IT include the development of a joint graduate certificate, providing networking opportunities for students across disciplines, and sharing expertise and skills with each other through teaching, research, and service.
Several semesters of introductory calculus courses Cincinnati Uptown Campus have implemented a flipped class model focused on student collaboration and leadership that appears successful in terms of student performance, professional skills, and attitudes.
Performance data from initial semesters suggest considerably improved student performance relative to non-flipped section. Survey and course evaluation data shows very positive student reception. Students come out of their shells, collaborate together, develop a positive relationship with mathematics, and actively take charge of their own learning.
