Wednesday, October 22 - How Faculty Can Manage Difficult Conversations with Students
10-11:30 (Innovative Educators)
In today’s world of blurred lines of communication, students often approach faculty with difficult conversations that go beyond the content area of study. This is a challenging situation for both faculty and student. Conversations can fall into a wide range of topics and they often cause stress and unforeseen challenges for faculty struggling with balance and finding the appropriate response. A student may be having a mental health crisis, panic around grades, angry outbursts, or social problems that extend beyond the classroom door.

Thursday, December 11 - Grading that Motivates and Retains Students
How we grade says a lot about our teaching philosophy and our priorities in the classroom. In this webinar, we'll investigate how that plays out in student motivation and retention. We'll look at characteristics of effective and ineffective grading. I'll share student feedback and lessons learned from a system I've been piloting for several semesters. Finally, we'll discuss some of the challenges we face with grades and some possible solutions.
