FACET Retreat 2022

34th Annual Retreat

June 8-10, 2022

Sheraton Riverside Hotel, Jeffersonville

Creativity and Experience: Enriching Teaching and Learning

In academia, many of us think of creativity as something that applies only to the arts. However, as teachers we actively participate in the creative process whenever we develop curricula, step into a classroom, or even engage with students online. In fashioning experiences using our own inventiveness, we help guide students to become creative and reflective thinkers. At the same time that we foster intellectual growth, we also enrich their lives, both now and in the future. In designing, running, and evaluating the experiences we fashion for our students, we utilize a variety of creative practices and habits of mind.

Save the date for the 2022 FACET Annual Retreat! Please stay tuned as we will continue to update this page with more details.

COVID Protocols

We are following current IU guidelines about exposures and close contacts, “If you are fully vaccinated, you should wear a mask when around others for 10 days and get tested 5 days after your exposure. If your test is negative and you do not have COVID-19 symptoms, you can continue with your normal routine.”

We respect people’s choices on masks, and will have some available should you choose to wear one. If you have any symptoms, please stay home.

Mark Hoyert, IUN

Mark S. Hoyert received his B.S. in 1981 and his B.A. in 1982 from the University of Maryland. He then earned his M.A. in 1985, and his Ph.D. in 1988 from Emory University. Hoyert is a Professor of Psychology at Indiana University Northwest in Gary. He was appointed to the Indiana University faculty in 1988. He energetically illustrates his lectures with copious jokes, drawings, stories, and real-world examples that underscore the content and at the same time make classes fun and exciting. He creates a comfortable atmosphere for learning, and his students are clearly engaged.

Hoyert's pedagogical contribution outside of the classroom is also evident through the substantial research he has done examining motivation for academic achievement. He developed a motivational intervention based on his findings—a tutoring program for struggling Introductory Psychology students—that has reduced their failure rate by half. He was awarded a P.A. Mack Fellowship through IU's Mack Center for Inquiry on Teaching and Learning, in part for his tutoring program.
