Fabulous First Friday: Re-engaging the Disengaged: In and Out of the Classroom Strategies to Help all Students Succeed

Friday, November 1, 2013 from 9:30 a.m to 11:30 a.m in  MRH (SOLES) 135

Facilitated by:
Neena Din, Assistant Dean, College of Arts and Sciences
Sara Boquin, Director, Student Support Services
Evelyn Kirkley, Associate Professor, Theology & Religious Studies

College professors yearn for academically interested students—students who are actively participating in the course material and enthusiastically engaged in their education. But not all students are like that. Whether it is because they are disengaged with the course material, under prepared, feeling excluded in the classroom climate, or have learning disabilities, many of our students clearly are not engaged.

Come join us for this two-hour drop in session where we will discuss strategies and issues to consider when we attempting to engage this population of student. Dr. Evelyn Kirkley from the department of Theology and Religious Studies, Neena Din, Assistant Dean in the College of Arts and Sciences, and Sara Boquin, Director of Student Support Services will be the facilitators for this very important conversation.

Fabulous First Fridays are monthly drop in discussion sessions about common classroom issues which are facilitated by experienced USD faculty and occasionally administrators. Ample time is given to share and tailor approaches to your own classroom situations and supplemental resource materials are provided. We welcome all faculty members to join us and discover, or rediscover, some of the best, research and experiential based, practices for teaching and learning.
Please note: you are welcome to drop in and out of the sessions your time allows.
