Faculty Seminar Series on Teaching & Learning
Theme: How well designed and implemented are your courses to maximize your students being successful learners?
Student thrive when they feel personally validated, have a growth mindset, and active involvement. Faculty play a critical role in creating this type of culture where students can be successful.
We are pleased to be meeting in person again! Come join a dynamic learning community by participating in this specially designed workshop series for all faculty (across all disciplines and rank). We’ll share strategies and best practices from research-based pedagogy. Great conversations and handouts guanteed.
Session 4: Are We Helping or Hurting?
Critical Factors in Motivating Students to Succeed
Have you ever said: “If only my students were more motivated, they would be better students”? Did you then attribute their lack of engagement as being lazy or apathetic?
Or perhaps…You should ask “Am I helping or hurting their access to success?” What is at stake here is not about the quantity of student motivation, but rather the quality. The type of motivation can affect the direction, persistence, and behaviors of our students. Join this session to learn what aspects of the class and your teaching, in addition to helpful strategies, influence the resultant type of student motivational goals and expectations.
Note: If you are a faculty member and would like to learn more, register for this year’s Faculty Retreat “Breaking Down the Garden Walls: A Promise of Access to Success” on March 4, 2022.
