Description

If you are teaching first-year or second-year students, you know that adjusting to college is a challenge for many students. Some struggle with course material, others find it difficult to develop good work habits, and others simply don't know where to turn if they need extra resources or support. Do you wish you knew more about how to help students to be academically successful in your courses? Would you like to know about campus resources available to support students who are academically at-risk? Join Eric Moschella, Director of the Student Success Center, for an interactive workshop in which you'll learn answers to these questions and more. The session will begin with an overview of the common reasons why beginning college students struggle academically, followed by a discussion of research-based classroom strategies that faculty can use to address these issues. The workshop will conclude with an informal discussion in which attendees will share questions, issues, and solutions they have encountered in their own teaching.
