Mid-Semester Feedback

October is a great month to solicit feedback from students. Graduatestudents can attend the TPS session this Friday (10/4). The FIC also offers web resources about the Whys and Hows for collecting feedback. 


Active Learning

The FIC workshop (10/17) and PTF Think Tank (10/24) this month focus on identifying and implementing active learning strategies. The workshop will be hands-on, while the think tank is a safe space to talk with colleagues.


EL: Autonomy Oct. 25

How much autonomy do we give students on a project and what kind of structures can we provide to help them through the process? Attend part two of the Experiential Learning fall series to find solutions.
