Congrats on all the presentations! I’m planning to submit to a psychology conference in early October. Regarding RoTL at KSU…I’ve never been to this conference, but given that we have a large panel, I was expecting the discussion to be less formal. We can talk about this on Friday (and of course I’m open to alternatives), but I thought I would provide a brief overview of the study and MSLQ data, and then the bulk of the limited time would be everyone discussing their experiences with the learner logs. I was expecting it to flow in an informal kind of way, not with each person taking a few minutes to speak first. Because there are so many of us, I think that would lose the flow and be less appealing to audience members. So, it seems like it would be more disruptive to play what would really only end up being a few minute video in the middle, especially without you being there for the interactive discussion and audience questions. I don’t know; that’s just my gut reaction. Maybe we could take notes on your input and share them as they fit within the flow of the conversation? Looking forward to talking more on Friday. But I’m trying to be really sensitive to how large a group we are. If everyone takes a few minutes to share their thoughts, there will be redundancy and we probably won’t get through many questions before our time is up. I expected that it would be more interactive, with everyone getting a chance to share some thoughts throughout.July 10, 2018 at 9:53 pm #7236
I agree…mid-October will be here before we know it! I admittedly have not yet been able to devote the time needed to get the database prepared and begin analyses, but I plan to do so before that August 2nd meeting! I know that will just be the initial step and we likely will need to do more after that, but it’ll get things underway.July 10, 2018 at 9:51 pm #7235
Great meeting; I wish I had been able to do more than just listen to the latter part of the discussion, which I think raised some important and complex issues! I look forward to seeing everyone on August 2nd!May 9, 2018 at 3:53 pm #7178
Hey guys! I’ve been swamped this week and still have a lot on the horizon. Are we still meeting tomorrow? Where are we meeting?April 20, 2018 at 5:55 pm #7120
Thanks, everyone, for all your input and encouragement! I’m going to submit the proposal now because I think it’s ready, and we want to get it submitted well before the deadline to increase its chances of acceptance! Fingers crossed!April 17, 2018 at 6:47 pm #7092
I’m not sure that link was correct! Ugh, technology and I don’t always mix. Here’s the one that should work. Please review the latest draft and give it your yea or nay. Would be great to get this out before the end of the week!April 17, 2018 at 6:16 pm #7091
In an effort to be more Academic Commons friendly, I’m posting the googledocs link to our KSU RoTL submission here. I’ve made a couple comments and am revising a few things based on the email exchange earlier today, but please take a look at it and note any changes you recommend. I’m not sure if I’ve set up the googledocs correctly, but at a minimum you should be able to write anything in a comment box (I think!).

I’m happy to take the lead on this one and see it through to the conference end, working with you all! Thanks for the opportunity and trust. Since the “expected outcomes” needed to be part of the abstract, I just put it in wording more generally in the sentences, but feel free to suggest bullets you think would be appropriate. I’m not used to using bulleted lists in abstracts or conference submissions, so I never think to do that! What would you/others suggest as specific expected outcomes, beyond the general stuff I put in?
No offense, but I don’t find Academic Commons all that user-friendly. Is that blasphemy? Aside from it being yet another site to log into (which I’ve now gotten better at!), I lose track of who said what in which conversation, etc., which makes it kind of unwieldy. But I’ll do my best to provide some vibrancy here!April 17, 2018 at 5:59 pm #7089
I had on my syllabus for students to complete the MSLQ by April 30th, but I can give them more time if needed. I’m worried too long after classes end and into finals, they’ll forget to do it, and it’ll be hard to keep hounding them without knowing who did it! At this point, everyone has their students’ unique ID #s. We need to make sure each student gets his/hers, and then once Ajay has the MSLQ ready to go, with that item added for them to enter their ID #, then we can go ahead and post the link, right? Ajay…what does the timing look like for that?
And I sent you all an email, but just note any duplicate students or students who listed the wrong sections, and I’ll make those corrections in the final database. Okay?April 17, 2018 at 5:55 pm #7088
Great work, everyone!April 16, 2018 at 8:01 pm #7066
YAY!!! We now have everyone’s usernames! 🙂April 14, 2018 at 9:26 pm #7040
That sounds fun!April 13, 2018 at 4:56 pm #7034
Thanks, Grace, for sharing that information! I was just looking at what’s needed for the submission, and I noted that we all will need to register. I’ll get the initial draft of proposal done this weekend (hopefully by early Sunday) and out to everyone for their input, revisions, etc. I will make sure it captures what this conference and the interactive presentations are targeting and our dual purpose in presenting!April 5, 2018 at 9:27 pm #6969
I’d really like to apply to this with whomever else is interested in it! I won’t be able to go to the conference in AZ, but attending the local one at KSU sounds perfect! I’m a little swamped right now with the faculty portfolios and a backlog of grading…who else is interested so we can coordinate efforts for the submission? On a related note, we also need to talk to David Robinson ASAP to make sure we have the MSLQ ready for completion as the end of the semester is drawing near. Were you going to meet with him? Do I need to be involved with that piece of it? Or is Ajay doing it (since he created the original one)? I just don’t want to lose track of that piece since it’s key to our study!
