Literature on student success emphasizes the importance of creating learning environments that allow students to feel connected to the University. While students do build many of these connections through extracurricular experiences, the struggling economy has made it challenging for many to have the time or Monday to participate in these kinds of activities. Thus, their classes and the faculty who teach them may offer the only opportunity for students to establish the kinds of connections that are crucial in promoting their success. This workshop offers practical strategies for designing teaching environments that evoke a sense of connection for students that ultimately advances their learning and academic success.

This session is devoted to exploring one factor that contributes to low graduation rates: student motivation. In this session, we will discuss research findings and creative strategies related to motivating students to achieve their degree -- and in a timely way.
