Creating Educational Experiences Over an 8-Week Term: Beginning a Collegewide Conversation
|Event Date(s):|| 01/09/2019
|Event Time(s):|| 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
|Event Description:|| This session will begin with two mentors, Marie Pennucci and Roselyn Dow, sharing their strategies, practices and questions regarding 8-week terms. Marie and Roselyn will address ways to begin thinking about 8-week terms, particularly about the importance of attending to academic quality in both planning and teaching in this accelerated mode. We will introduce other considerations connected to 8-week terms, including assignments, learning outcomes, and student-mentor communication. Following time for questions and comments from participants, the session will end with a summary of the main ideas and questions that have emerged in our discussion. Finally, we will conclude the session by suggesting a plan for furthering this conversation and taking the next steps together.
