Grad+ Series: First-Year Student Assumptions and Instructor Expectations: A Failure to Communicate?

Event Location: 
Johnson Classroom (Study Room 1), Lucille Little Fine Arts Library
Event Date: 
Wednesday, October 23, 2019 - 3:00pm

3:00-4:15

This event is designed for graduate students.

The transition from high school to college is challenging for first-year students. Much of this challenge is in not knowing what to expect in the college classroom. This workshop asks us to evaluate the assumptions first-year students may make about succeeding in the college classroom and how these assumptions may not align with our expectations as instructors. Participants will analyze how they can make their expectations more transparent to students whose assumptions may misalign with classroom learning outcomes and goals.
