Understanding & Supporting Today's Students

Wednesday, March 4, 2020 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Whether it’s surprise about their apparent lack of foundational knowledge, irritation with their in-class behavior, or frustration with an insufficient work ethic, there are plenty of things students do (or don’t do) that can be positively irksome. This workshop will help us challenge the way we think about these perplexing behaviors, and it will provide information to help us better contextualize today’s college students. We will also discuss a variety of teaching suggestions that can help move your students from where they are to where they could be.

A STEM Framework for Teaching & Learning

Thursday, March 19, 2020 - 9:30am to 10:45am
218 Anne Belk Hall, CAE Classroom 222

With the STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics) acronym having so many meanings and implications, it is often difficult to develop shared meanings on which to base teaching and learning.  In this session, facilitators will share a framework based on student practices that orient STEM not only on the intersection of the disciplines but also on the ways of thinking and habits of mind that are essential for STEM learning. Such an orientation provides openings for inclusivity and diversity of thinking about the STEM fields and various cultural approaches and contexts.
