Department of Dental Hygiene

DEN2300L Principles of Dental Hygiene

Activity Description: Provide a brief description of the activity

During the semester students are asked to build the e-portfolio page and post: resume, cases, bio, and extracurricular activities. I propose to add a part to this project and have the answer questions that will lead to answer “ What image do they have of themselves as professionals?”

Learning Goals: What do you aim to achieve with this activity?

To incorporate; clinical practice, classroom theory, and personal experience, and help the student build their professional brand

Timing: At what point in the lesson or semester do you use this activity? How much classroom time do you devote to it? How much out-of-class time is expected?

: It can start during the second semester in the DH program, after their research project. Classroom time is NOT necessary. 3hrs of work is the maximum time necessary, per semester.

Logistics: What preparation is needed for this activity? What instructions do you give students? Is the activity low-stakes, high-stakes, or something else?

There is no special preparation needed. The instructions for how long the answers should be and the format, will be posted on the Dental Hygiene Open Lab. This assignment is considered a HIEP. General SLOs: Open educational Pedagogy/ Learning communities/ writing – Intensive project/ assignments

Assessment: How do you assess this activity? What assessment measures do you use? Do you use a VALUE rubric? If not, how did you develop your rubric? Is your course part of the college-wide general education assessment initiative?

The Value Rubric would be given to students as a guide. They would be graded by their ability to stay within 50 words and the amount of grammatical errors within this statement. One of the questions will require them to find 2 references to support their argument/ point of view.

Reflection: How well did this activity work in your classroom? Would you repeat it? Why or why not? What challenges did you encounter, and how did you address them? What, if anything, would you change? What did students seem to enjoy about the activity?

Final Hotel Design Project

Final Hotel Design Project

Harry Shapiro

Hospitality Management

Services Marketing & Management

Activity Description: Provide a brief description of the activity

Students create a blog post that contains the conceptual design of a hotel that has a specific place-based location. They will design services for their hotel along with a service delivery system (Heskett, 1994), and elements of a servicescape (Bitner, 1992). They will also explore how information about this hotel will be brought to market; they must contemplate how they will create marketing messages for the hotel. They will use the hotel to explore the interdependencies between services management and marketing. Students will be given an example outline, and an example of a completed assignment.

This is the fifth of five related assignments and it will be used by the students as the input to a final summative exam.

Learning Goals: What do you aim to achieve with this activity?

Students will create a blog post. Critical Reasoning about Ethics will play a major role in crafting this post; such thinking will help students understand and balance the diverse needs of guests, staff and management.

However, there are additional and overlapping goals and objectives including place based learning, and storytelling. This activity will use a peer reviewed critical thinking (around Ethical issues) rubric to help the students understand the complex balance that must be achieved in consideration of the needs of the staff, the customers, the managers, and the owners when designing, managing, and marketing a service.

Ultimately they should be able to demonstrate that if staff are not properly treated, the guests will not be treated well and they will have a hard time marketing their property; inversely when they go above in beyond in caring for staff, not only will it help improve guest experiences it will help the hotel "market itself." They will also make it clear how the Servicescape of the hotel plays a role in the treatment of guests and staff, but also in how the hotel is able to "auto-magically create its own marketing."

Services management is often an futile attempt to brindle, constrain, and restrict the activities of staff while demanding impeccable service delivery — Heskett (1994) turns this on it's head by making it clear that management must first create an impeccable workspace for the staff (the Service Profit Chain) if they wish to have an effective and impeccable service delivery system. Bitner (1992) makes it clear that the space in which the service is delivered also plays a key role in the service delivery. Bitner's work pre-dates the Instagram Selfie, the smartphone, and the selfie stick — yet a property with an excellent servicescape will generate its own inbound marketing (Shah, & Halligan, 2005).

The final summative assessment for the course will ask students to draw from this assignment; this assignment is asking them to create their own Services Management and Marketing "crayon box" and during their final exam use it to draw-out the learning they have synthesized during the course.

Timing: At what point in the lesson or semester do you use this activity? How much classroom time do you devote to it? How much out-of-class time is expected?

Very little time is to be spent in class on this phase of the assignment. Classroom time will include a discussion of the assignment during week 10, a review of the assignment week 11, and during week 12 a showcase covering how the assignment will be used during the exam week. During week 14 the students will peer review each other's assignments using several rubrics. During week 15 the students will use a print-out of their post as part of their final exam.

Logistics: What preparation is needed for this activity? What instructions do you give students? Is the activity low-stakes, high-stakes, or something else?

The prior assignments should help students prepare for this assignment.

Prior Blogging Assignments
* Design a Dish
* Design a Signature Dish
* Design a Hotel (Group Assignment)
* Design a Customer Relationship Management Process (group)
* Design a Hotel (Individual Assignment) ← This assignment

The instructions are found here:

Example Individual Hotel Concept

Assessment: How do you assess this activity? What assessment measures do you use? Do you use a VALUE rubric? If not, how did you develop your rubric? Is your course part of the college-wide general education assessment initiative?

Students will peer review with several rubrics including the Ethical Reasoning Value Rubric. The instructors assessment using the Ethical Reasoning Value Rubric will also be submitted to the school.

Since this activity is a precursor to the final and summative assessment for the course, the assignment will be "graded" during this assessment. The course is a writing intensive course.

Reflection: How well did this activity work in your classroom? Would you repeat it? Why or why not? What challenges did you encounter, and how did you address them? What, if anything, would you change? What did students seem to enjoy about the activity?

I have completed parts 1 – 4 (see below); it has worked effectively. Students have demonstrably been able synthesize the learning outcomes from the course into real world examples. A challenge to this specific was the negative reaction to the detailed nature of the assignment. This negative reaction was discussed openly and compassionately; I presented a counter narrative discussing how since this was part of the final exam, they were better off with an assignment that gives them five weeks to complete it vs. having to craft it only within the time allowed during an exam. Most students accepted the "open book" and "take-home" nature of the assignment. Prior assignments included

* Design a Dish
* Design a Signature Dish
* Design a Hotel (Group Assignment)
* Design a Customer Relationship Management Process (group)

Clinic Journals Updated version

Clinic Journals Updated version

Annie Chitlall

Dental Hygiene

Principles of Dental Hygiene Care II

Activity Description: Provide a brief description of the activity

Students will write clinic journals in Dental 1200. Each journal will be written on a completed patient. However, an entry will be made after each phase of patient care. Each student will incorporate ethical reasoning and critical thinking during the phases of the assignment. The students will enter the journal on the Den 1200 open lab site. There will be an open discussion between each student and his/her clinic advisor about the level of patient care provided.

Learning Goals: What do you aim to achieve with this activity?

• For students to reflect on the patient care provided at each appointment and discern if the client goals for care were reached in that session. Ethical self -awareness constitutes a major portion of the patient care process in dental hygiene. Students will have an opportunity to reflect on each clinical session spent with a patient and reflect based on the dental hygiene code of ethics what could have been done differently for a patient. The students will evaluate the different ethical concepts of dental hygiene patient care to answer the following question- Did the patient really need all the services that was planned and implemented or did you create a patient care plan based on your clinical requirements?
• Students will reflect and critique if the patient care plan that was created for that clinical session was appropriate based the patient’s oral health needs. They will also have an opportunity to understand the different ethical concepts that are part of patient care process. A student can use these journal entries to determine for themselves if the patient received optimum care.
• Students will have an opportunity to highlight ethical issue recognition by reflecting whether or not the patient care was not completed after one clinical session because that patient did not satisfy a clinical requirement for that student.

Timing: At what point in the lesson or semester do you use this activity? How much classroom time do you devote to it? How much out-of-class time is expected?

This assignment is distributed to the students during orientation at the beginning of the semester, there will be a discussion about the number of patients needed for the semester during which the journal entry requirements will be introduced. Students will post a clinical journal within 48 hours of each patient’s appointment for every clinic session. Clinical journals are to be written after each step of patient care is completed. This activity will not occur in the classroom. Students will need about 2-3 hours out-of-class time to complete these journals if they the recommended timeline is followed. This assignment will occur throughout the semester until all patients are completed.

Logistics: What preparation is needed for this activity? What instructions do you give students? Is the activity low-stakes, high-stakes, or something else?

Preparation for this assignment will be a review and of the assignment along with a sample journal entry that students will follow and the handout given for the assignment. The students need to be able to demonstrate writing mechanics, understanding, and completeness of the assignment. This activity is low-stakes because the grade is a tiny portion of their overall average, however, it can also be a high-stakes because a student will not pass the course if they fail to complete the assignment.

Assessment: How do you assess this activity? What assessment measures do you use? Do you use a VALUE rubric? If not, how did you develop your rubric? Is your course part of the college-wide general education assessment initiative?

An appropriate AAC&U VALUE rubric will be used for the evaluation. However, students will be graded on based on completeness and understanding of the assignment. The student must demonstrate a sophisticated understanding of the concepts in the assignment and must address all elements in the assignment in an appropriate length. The writing must be clear, concise, and correct. No spelling or grammatical errors. Extremely well organized

Reflection: How well did this activity work in your classroom? Would you repeat it? Why or why not? What challenges did you encounter, and how did you address them? What, if anything, would you change? What did students seem to enjoy about the activity?

Currently and from previous experience, the students are not required to complete a journal entry after each clinical session but instead are required to submit three completed journals by the end of the semester. This results in students waiting for the last day of classes to submit this assignment and does not allow for any open discussions between instructors and students. The last-minute submissions or journals have not yielded positive results since most entries are missing pertinent information and students do not have an opportunity for open discussion with assigned faculty members. I would like this activity to be repeated but will modify the requirements for submission. Students will develop a better appreciation of this assignment if after each patient care visit there is a required entry for that visit and an evaluation of their goals for a specific aspect of the patient care process was met. Over the semesters the biggest challenge is receiving these journal entries in a timely manner. Most students wait for the deadline date and post their entries at midnight, this does not allow for a discussion and often results in a low grade. Students seem to enjoy the self-reflection portion of the assignment most.

Additional Information: Please share any additional comments and further documentation of the activity – e.g. assignment instructions, rubrics, examples of student work, etc. These can be links to pages or posts on the OpenLab.

Students are required to write clinic journals in Dental 1200. Each journal will be written on a completed patient. However, an entry will be made after each clinical session with a patient or within 48 hours of the appointment. Each student needs to incorporate ethical reasoning and critical thinking during the phases of the assignment. Each entry should reflect that the student has asked themselves what does ethics mean to you in the dental hygiene patient care process and how did you incorporate the dental hygiene code of ethics in your patient care for each clinical session. Students will enter the journal entries on the Den 1200 open lab site. There will be an open discussion between each student and his/her clinic advisor about the level of patient care provided for each entry that is made. Each journal entry needs to include the level of patient care that was provided based on the goals that were set for that patient.

Social Media Review

Social Media Review

Denise Sutton

Business/School of Professional Studies

Essentials of Marketing (MKT 1100)

Activity Description: Provide a brief description of the activity

Students work in small groups of three. Each group will choose a Fortune 500 company that has a “corporate responsibility” (or philanthropy) component as part of its brand identity. The group will identify three social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or YouTube) and will analyze the company’s use of social media using a SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats). Each student will focus on one platform and collaborate on findings. The group will make recommendations to the company’s Communication Office team.

Learning Goals: What do you aim to achieve with this activity?

The purpose of this assignment is to analyze the effectiveness of social media as a marketing tool and to identify the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats in order to make recommendations to the company Communications Office. Suggestions may include ways to improve connection to the consumer, content and consumer engagement, and to identify problems and/or inconsistencies between messaging and brand identity—especially as it relates to its social responsibility programming. Students will address Gen Ed Student Learning Outcomes associated with ethical reasoning skills.

Timing: At what point in the lesson or semester do you use this activity? How much classroom time do you devote to it? How much out-of-class time is expected?

This activity is assigned approximately two-thirds of the way into the semester. Students will have read the chapters on digital marketing, corporate governance, and the marketing mix/SWOT analysis—all components of this assignment. Two classroom periods are dedicated to this assignment. Research and writing done outside of classroom.

Logistics: What preparation is needed for this activity? What instructions do you give students? Is the activity low-stakes, high-stakes, or something else?

This is a low-stakes assignment. Students will have read textbook material and case studies (and discussed this material in class) that connect to and inform this assignment.

Assessment: How do you assess this activity? What assessment measures do you use? Do you use a VALUE rubric? If not, how did you develop your rubric? Is your course part of the college-wide general education assessment initiative?

Students will address Gen Ed Student Learning Outcomes associated with ethical reasoning skills, mainly in the first three categories (ethical self-awareness, understanding different ethical perspectives/concepts, and ethical issue recognition).

Ethical Reasoning Skills (student recognizes basic ethical issues, student states position, student states core belief):
• How are consumer complaints handled? Amount of time it takes company to respond, appropriateness of response, follow-up, etc;
• What is the company mission statement? Is the company’s core mission evident in all messaging/content?
• How effective is the company’s philanthropic messaging? Is it consistent? Engaging?
• Are consumer’s engaged?
• Are company privacy policies transparent?

In addition, students identify ethical issues, which may include:
• Privacy concerns
• Issues of transparency regarding company governance and policies
• Consumer relations/consumer rights
• Use of social media in communication crises (e.g., the Starbucks racial incident in Philadelphia)
• The ethics of framing stories/content (e.g., point of view, including different and even opposing views, etc.)

Ethical Reasoning Performance Criteria met in this assignment: Ethical self-awareness, understanding different ethical perspectives/concepts, ethical issue recognition. Meet benchmark one, and perhaps some of milestone two.

*Ethical Awareness Steps: Awareness, identification of stakeholders, identification and review of resources, identify and consider multiple solutions, reflect, take action. The students will go through each step with the exception of the final “take action” step.

MKT 1100 Student Learning Outcomes—General Education
In this assignment, the students are:

1) Using the ability to use the arts and humanities as a forum for the study of values and ethical principles;
2) Demonstrating intellectual honesty and personal responsibility;
3) Discerning the consequences of decisions and actions;

Rubric for grade evaluation:
1. Analysis (Details? Level of sophistication? Shows recognition and understanding of social media ethical issues?) 25%
2. Recommendations (Are they creative, do they add value?) 25%
3. Quality of writing (Clear, concise, well-organized?) 25%
4. Quality of presentation (Clear, concise, enthusiastic, engaging, quality of response to questions?) 25%

Reflection: How well did this activity work in your classroom? Would you repeat it? Why or why not? What challenges did you encounter, and how did you address them? What, if anything, would you change? What did students seem to enjoy about the activity?

New assignment: Fall 2018.

Princinples of Dental Hygiene Care II

Activity Description: Provide a brief description of the activity

Students will write 3 clinic journals in Dental 1200. Each journal will be written on a completed patient. The students will enter the journal on the Den 1200 open lab site. There will be an open discussion between each student and his/her clinic advisor to ensure that the journal has met all the required information listed on the handout/rubric.

Learning Goals: What do you aim to achieve with this activity?

Timing: At what point in the lesson or semester do you use this activity? How much classroom time do you devote to it? How much out-of-class time is expected?

Students will post a clinical journal within 48 hours of patient completion. Clinical journals are to be written after each step of patient care is completed. This activity will not occur in the classroom. Students will need about 2-3 hours out-of-class time to complete these journals if they the recommended timeline is followed.

Logistics: What preparation is needed for this activity? What instructions do you give students? Is the activity low-stakes, high-stakes, or something else?

The students need to be able to demonstrate writing mechanics, understanding, and completeness of the assignment. Writing must be clear, concise, and correct. No spelling or grammatical errors.

This activity is low-stakes.

Assessment: How do you assess this activity? What assessment measures do you use? Do you use a VALUE rubric? If not, how did you develop your rubric? Is your course part of the college-wide general education assessment initiative?

There will be a grading rubric for this assignment.

Reflection: How well did this activity work in your classroom? Would you repeat it? Why or why not? What challenges did you encounter, and how did you address them? What, if anything, would you change? What did students seem to enjoy about the activity?

Currently and from previous experience, the students do not follow the recommended timeline and rush to submit the required 3 journal entries on the deadline. The last-minute submissions or journals have not yielded positive results since most entries are missing pertinent information and students do not have an opportunity for open discussion with assigned faculty members. I would repeat this activity but will modify the requirements for submission.

Designing New Services

Designing New Services

Harry Shapiro

Hospitality

Services Marketing & Management

Activity Description: Provide a brief description of the activity

Students working in groups are requested to design a new hotel with the business or economic goal of service a specific class of customers. For example: high school students on a class trip, teams from start-ups that are traveling together for business, groups of millenial age friends who are traveling together, LGBTQ travels, folks who have any disability covered by ADA who are traveling for business or pleasure.

Specifically the students are to create several services within the hotel that are designed to appeal to the travel, describe a Servicescape for those services to "live within," and use the Service Profit Chain (SPC) to create rewards, tools and other innovations to find, hire, and create an awesome team of staff and managers.

Learning Goals: What do you aim to achieve with this activity?

The objective is for students to use critical thinking and pull-in much of what they know about hospitality to design amazing servicescapes that can support amazing new and innovative services and use the tools offered within the SPC to insure that those services are delivered effectively and efficiently.

Timing: At what point in the lesson or semester do you use this activity? How much classroom time do you devote to it? How much out-of-class time is expected?

Throughout including the first few weeks, after the mid-term, and again towards the end of the course. In case students will have 20-30 minutes in groups. The groups are based on the normal table seating. However, diff. exercises will mix and match the students so they can interact and engage with the entire class through the exercise.

Logistics: What preparation is needed for this activity? What instructions do you give students? Is the activity low-stakes, high-stakes, or something else?

Students should be current on reading. There is both instructor assigned reading and self assigned materials.

Assessment: How do you assess this activity? What assessment measures do you use? Do you use a VALUE rubric? If not, how did you develop your rubric? Is your course part of the college-wide general education assessment initiative?

The goal is to refine this over the course of the term. There are several initial assessments verbally in class as well as peer assessments.

The core exercise is going to be a critical part of the final exam which will offer a summative assessment assessment: have students learned how servicescapes and the SCP work together? Have students learned how the design of a new service impacts staff & customers. How students learned how to design innovative management and reward structures to support their innovative new services.

Reflection: How well did this activity work in your classroom? Would you repeat it? Why or why not? What challenges did you encounter, and how did you address them? What, if anything, would you change? What did students seem to enjoy about the activity?

It is going well. This is the firs term

Table Research

Table Research

Harry Shapiro

Hospitality Management

HGMT 3502

Activity Description: Provide a brief description of the activity

Students "hear" a discussion about solving management problems/issues but don't really understand what that means. It's the difference between writing a paper that explains why recycling is needed (which is hardly original), vs. designing a recycling program for a business that needs such a plan..

"Research" is a tough course to teach for a variety of reasons including that most students have a deeply held concept of what it means to write a research report. In short most feel it means read what a few folks have said about a topic and repeat it back using lot's of quotes.

HGMT 3502 Hospitality Management Research Seminar – is focused on students finding original solutions to *management problems* within the industry.

While there are many ways to continue research from a in depth literature review, statistical analysis of secondary data, or going through the IRB process and collect primary data — 100% the best way for a hospitality management student to do original research is to find a management issue some place where they work, or have worked, and solve it!

Learning Goals: What do you aim to achieve with this activity?

The goal of this activity is to ask students in small groups to define what are and what are not "management issues and problems" and to understand the scoping issue between "a global issue" like fair wages and a "management issue" — how to help a specific business implement a fair wage policy that doesn't pay (for example) women less money (for the same job) as men.

Timing: At what point in the lesson or semester do you use this activity? How much classroom time do you devote to it? How much out-of-class time is expected?

1st class — first 1/2 of the first class. About 20 minutes.

Logistics: What preparation is needed for this activity? What instructions do you give students? Is the activity low-stakes, high-stakes, or something else?

I will read from the syllabus to explain why HGMT is focused on solving "management issues" and identify a few examples. Then I will ask each group to find 1 more example. Each group will present their example(s).

I will provide a list of global issues and a rubric for evaluating if it has been transformed into a management issue.

Then as a follow-up each group will be given more time to find "new" global issues and a corresponding management issue.

Assessment: How do you assess this activity? What assessment measures do you use? Do you use a VALUE rubric? If not, how did you develop your rubric? Is your course part of the college-wide general education assessment initiative?

Teamwork and collaboration: are the groups dominated by a single student or are they as a group working through the problem.

Finding answers that fit into the rubric of a management issue.

Reflection: How well did this activity work in your classroom? Would you repeat it? Why or why not? What challenges did you encounter, and how did you address them? What, if anything, would you change? What did students seem to enjoy about the activity?

Instructure Eval:
Discussion: post even discussion about possible topics and the focus of original research –> have students understood the scoping issue.

Student "want" to write about one or more very broad topics which they can discuss with little depth and details; whereas a typically successful paper covers one very narrow topic in super depth and detail.

Additional Information: Please share any additional comments and further documentation of the activity – e.g. assignment instructions, rubrics, examples of student work, etc. These can be links to pages or posts on the OpenLab.

If students don't really understand what type of paper is required from them, they can't really pick a topic.

They (typically) pick global topics of interest to them (recycling, diversity, etc.) but the rarely go to the next level and pick a narrowly scoped topic that allows to solve a problem with actionable details.

BINGO: Technical Term Identification, Recognition, and Employment in an Interactive Format

BINGO: Technical Term Identification, Recognition, and Employment in an Interactive Format

Karen Goodlad

Hospitaltity Management/School of Professional Studies

Wine and Beverage Management

Activity Description: Provide a brief description of the activity

This activity is a way to engage students in their pre-class reading, in-class knowledge development, and post class review. To play BINGO, students will fill-in a BINGO grid with technical terms, statements, or questions about the subject mater (the teacher should complete 5-7 boxes as an exemplar). During class students will listen for information to help define the term, complete the statement, or answer the question. When a row of information is both filled in and answered then the student yells "BINGO".

Learning Goals: What do you aim to achieve with this activity?

Development of technical term identification, recognition, and employment.

Timing: At what point in the lesson or semester do you use this activity? How much classroom time do you devote to it? How much out-of-class time is expected?

The activity will span the length of the class session. Allow 10 minutes at the start of the class for students to review the notes they prepared during their pre-class reading (or the BINGO form can be completed as homework). Proceed with class as normal, when a student yells BINGO the teacher will take a minute to check their work.

This activity can be used at any point in the semester and is best for development of highly technical terms.

Logistics: What preparation is needed for this activity? What instructions do you give students? Is the activity low-stakes, high-stakes, or something else?

To Do:
Create BINGO Grid
Create instructions for students to complete the grid
Explain how BINGO is achieved (a row of boxes must be filled in and completed)

This is a low stakes, in-class activity.

Assessment: How do you assess this activity? What assessment measures do you use? Do you use a VALUE rubric? If not, how did you develop your rubric? Is your course part of the college-wide general education assessment initiative?

If the boxes of the grid are complete then the student is prepared for class the material.
If the student answers the questions or phrases throughout the class session then that is an indication they they are engaged with the lecture and discussion. This is an example of formative assessment.

Reflection: How well did this activity work in your classroom? Would you repeat it? Why or why not? What challenges did you encounter, and how did you address them? What, if anything, would you change? What did students seem to enjoy about the activity?

At first the students were confused and apprehensive. As class progressed it was evident that they were engaged. By the end of class students were excited about how much they learned (completing the grid made it easy to see the knowledge they developed). Students approached me after class to say they appreciated the creativity needed to develop and execute the activity.
