Aligning Student and Faculty Perspectives on Learning 3 pack
If instructors and students hold different definitions and expectations about rigor and learning, the academic process falls short of its potential.
When faculty and students are connected and communicating well, both are prone to more positive experiences and outlooks in and out of the classroom. Students who feel connected to the content and their instructor are more willing to put in the work and take responsibility for their own learning.
What can faculty do to facilitate greater understanding between themselves and their students?
The Aligning Student and Faculty Perspectives on Learning 3 Pack, presented by Lolita Paff, PhD, provides solutions that will enhance student-teacher relationships, promote enrollment and retention, and create successful courses, programs, and institutions.
