    The influence of social media on alcohol consumption of mothers of children and adolescents: a scoping review of the literature
    (2023) Reisdorfer, Emilene; Nesari, Maryam; Krell, Kari; Johnston, Sharon; Dunlop, Randi Ziorio; Chute, Andrea; Goes, Fernanda dos Santos Nogueira; Singh, Inder
    Alcohol misuse is a common problem in many countries, where alcohol is often portrayed as a fun and interactive coping strategy for mothers to manage the demands of motherhood. Social media platforms have established themselves as a popular forum for mothers to share information and create an environment in which mothers may be exposed to and influenced by alcohol-related content. Given the increased social acceptance and normalization of drinking among mothers, especially during the recent pandemic, a critical analysis of social media influences on alcohol behaviours and consumption is warranted. A scoping review mapped the evidence on social media influences and alcohol consumption among mothers of children and teenagers younger than eighteen years old. Several databases were consulted, and the evidence was collated into two themes and seven subthemes. Factors related to alcohol consumption in motherhood include (1) community and social support, (2) coping and mental health, (3) motherhood expectations and identity, (4) alcohol consumption, (5) marketing strategies, (6) everyday issues, and (7) social media influence. Numerous social, economic, and health problems are associated with alcohol misuse. The current literature suggests that social media is a powerful tool to disseminate messages about alcohol and normalize mothers’ drinking behaviours.

    Resistance is fertile: productive responses to student pushback
    (2017) Martin, Paul
    When we as faculty members get pushback from students about any kind of innovation, assignment, or teaching choice, we tend to react in a number of different ways. Sometimes we stubbornly carry through with our plan and other times we acquiesce and make changes based on what the students want. In both cases, we often feel resentful or wonder if we’ve done the right thing. In this session, we’ll explore the reasons behind student resistance and how we can place student learning at the heart of how we respond to it.

    Active learning: what is it and why should I use it?
    (2017) Peck, Carla L.
    CALIBER welcomes Dr. Carla Peck as the keynote speaker. Dr. Carla Peck joined the Faculty of Education at the University of Alberta in 2007. Her program of research has two main foci: The first seeks to map the qualitatively different ways that teachers’ and students’ understand key democratic concepts such as diversity, citizenship, and citizen participation in a democracy. The second area of her research is on students’ historical understandings, and in particular, the relationship between students’ ethnic identities and their understandings of history. In 2013, Carla was awarded the Faculty of Education Undergraduate Teaching Award and the Rutherford Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching. As Associate Director (Curriculum) Carla is responsible for CTL’s Peer Consultation program, and is available for consultation for other curriculum-related needs as well.
