Free Webinar

April 18, 2012
Have you ever had a student walk into your classroom that       had the spark, yet had not been successful at achieving his or her       scholastic potential? Join us on Thursday,       April 26th, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern, when Stratford       University Campus Dean, Dr. Michelle D. Bicey, and Campus Director, Dr.       Patricia S. Miller, will discuss their three prong approach to retaining       these “diamonds in the rough.”

This presentation will give attendees the opportunity to       learn the three prong approach to student persistence and retention:       Instruction, Advisement, and Student Support. Attendees will also learn       how to build a student focused environment that cultivates the student       and encourages persistence and retention.

To access the web-based portion of the webinar:
Go to http://lotuslive.readyshow.com       and follow the prompts under “join a conference” for entering       your name, company name, and the pass code 68257640.

Faculty Focus Teaching And Learning

This article provides a good foundation for what we will try to develop with this blog.

http://www.facultyfocus.com/articles/teaching-professor-blog/a-good-conversation-about-teaching-and-learning/

“When I write posts, I’m thinking about us having a good conversation about teaching and learning. And what characterizes good exchanges on instructional topics? They start off being on a topic of interest. I think the relevance of the topic needs to be established by the title and in the first couple of lines. Anybody writing about teaching and learning fights against the absence of norms expecting faculty to grow and develop professionally by reading. We all know that colleagues who don’t read experience few professional consequences. True, their students suffer, but they don’t, although perhaps their professional experiences are not as rich and satisfying.”
