When: March 6, 11:30 AM – 1 PM

Where: MAC 201 or virtually via Blackboard Collaborate Ultra

Join us for a tough talk with Vince Lowery, Associate Professor of  Humanities and History, and interim director of the GPS Program.

We often assume that when students enter our classrooms they’re prepared to engage in conversations and work on our terms, but have you ever stopped to think about what they understand education to be based on in relation to their high school experiences? Or, perhaps more importantly, what they’re going through outside the classroom as they adapt to a new environment? If you have, to what extent does your course reflect and effort to support students through that transition? We’ll tackle this tough talk and the ways we might best support a successful transition for first-year students.
