Academic Building (H) - Room 202
By Invitation Only: 

Do you find your students are often underprepared for the rigor and expectations of your class? This is a common challenge many of us face, yet we are expected to teach these students and many of us feel intense pressure to reduce DFW rates. What should we do? Should we fail them? Do we need to do what some view as handholding or coddling? In this panel you will learn about research on this topic, and several faculty colleagues will share though-provoking, successful approaches to moving students where they need to be by first meeting students where they are. Come and discuss your ideas with us as you learn about what you can do in the classroom to help more of your students build momentum and truly succeed, without compromising the integrity of your course.
