Research-Based Teaching Series- Smoothing the Transition: Helping Your Freshmen Adjust to College Work

September 11, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Smoothing the Transition Workshop for faculty offered on Blue Ridge 107, Cumming Campus 262, Dahlonega Hansford HAll 312, Gainesville Campus Nesbitt 5105, and Oconee Campus in SRC 561Led by Steve Pearson, Assistant Professor of English

Monday, September 11, 2017
12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

This workshop will present retention issues that can be addressed early in students’ coursework¬†and will ask faculty to brainstorm solutions. Obstacles with research, not understanding expectations, retention problems, and students’ backgrounds are¬†all difficulties that students face. Because of all of these issues can be addressed, and hopefully prevented, by faculty, this presentation will ask faculty to consider ways that we can address them in first-year courses.
