Join Dr. Pamela Barnett, the College of Arts & Sciences Dean, for a series of discussions this fall, based on How Learning Works: 7 Research-based Principles for Smart Teaching. This book provides clear summaries of important research on how adults learn, as well as concrete pedagogical strategies for you to apply in any discipline.
Discussions will take place during community time (3-4:15pm) and there are reference copies available for reading in the faculty lounge.
Dec. 1: Chapter 6 & 7, “Why Do Student Development and Course Climate Matter for Student Learning?” and “How Do Students Become Self-Directed Learners?”
Come join the CAS advising team for this interactive session about their role in student success at Trinity! Faculty who attend this workshop will better understand the professional advising approach and model, learn about new initiatives for first and second year students and to discuss how CAS Advising can support faculty in student transition and academic outreach.
All faculty are invited to attend this faculty salon presented by Assistant Professor of Psychology, Dr. Nikeea Linder.
