Register for the 2018 Instructional Development Institute

This year’s Institute (to be held January 18, 2018) coincides with UW-Green Bay’s “Becoming a Student-Ready University” initiative, sponsored by the Office of the Provost and Business and Finance. The morning will kick-off with a special keynote by Dr. Christine Harrington, who will speak to our entire campus community about how small actions can have a big impact on student achievement. She will ask us to consider how student experiences in and out of the classroom make a huge difference in terms of persistence and goal completion, and she will follow-up by encouraging us to discuss the small actions that staff, faculty, and administrators can take to help students meet with success.

Sessions include workshops on Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity, Transparency in Teaching and Learning, Peer Review, the Flipped Classroom, Information Literacy, Contemplative Pedagogy, Student Success, and more. Registration is open until January 10th, but, why wait! Space is limited.

“Are You Smart Enough?”

Leaders in this book discussion will take up Alexander Astin’s theory that “college’s obsession with smartness shortchanges students, which widens inequities.” This discussion will be held Nov. 17 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. in the Vista Room (MAC Hall 301). A limited number of copies of the book can be borrowed by contacting Stacie Christian or Caroline Boswell. Please RSVP to reserve your spot for this intriguing discussion. This event is a collaboration between Inclusive Excellence and the “Becoming a Student-Ready University” Initiative. If needed, another group discussion will be held on Dec. 1 from 9 to 10:30 a.m.
