The Office of Student Services is partnering with the Office of Minority Recruitment and Retention to bring alumni back to campus to share their journeys and discuss their career paths. These College of Education alumni have achieved great success in their fields, though the path may not have been linear. The Alumni Panel discussion is intended to allow current and prospective students to hear the advice and the experience of those who have graduated with a degree from the College of Education, and to provide a forum for a conversation in which students can ask panelists questions about studying, academic and professional careers, job searching, interviewing, etc. Students will come from diverse backgrounds and a variety of programs including Special Education, Measurement and Statistics, Higher Education, and Learning Sciences.


Tomorrow- Developing your Syllabus

An effective course design begins with understanding your students; deciding what you want them to learn; determining how you will measure student learning; and planning activities, assignments, and materials that support student learning. The syllabus provides the instructor and students with a common reference point that sets the stage for learning throughout the course. In this 90-minute workshop learn more about how to develop and create a syllabus. This will also include an interactive component!

First Fridays for Grad Students: Browsing the Active Learning Library

  • February 7, 2014 | 12:30-1:30pm | Browsing the Active Learning Library
    Workshop facilitated by: Ben Wiggins (Education/Biology) (PDF flyer)

While the traditional passive teaching method is still widely used, research is rapidly demonstrating the benefits to learning, affect, and diversity that come from more active teaching styles. But teachers are left to decide: How can I make my class more active? In this workshop, we’ll present several research-based active learning styles. Your goal is to create a plan to replace your worst or most daunting teaching task with an active learning strategy that is most appropriate for your classroom, topic and students.
