CITLA Spring Symposium
May 23, 2013 from 12:00-4:00 p.m.
Knight Campus, Room 4090 RSVP HERE
Instructor Amy Baldwin, from Pulaski Technical College (AR), will present a workshop entitled, “ I Have to Do What?: Helping Students Understand the Culture and the Unwritten Rules of College ”.
“What are office hours?” and “What is a syllabus?” are common questions that faculty hear when trying to help their first-year students acclimate to the culture of college. Many CCRI students are the first in their families to enroll in college; others may come from a culture of origin that has different rules and expectations, and the faster they can learn the new rules of college, the more successful they will be in the long run. This interactive workshop provides participants with suggested content, active learning strategies, and meaningful and engaging assignments that can help first-year students learn the unwritten rules of college culture. The workshop will include the following subtopics:
- Understanding college culture and expectations
- Building meaningful relationships
- Improving academic skills
Participants will each receive a booklet that provides instructions and sample assignments for the college culture issues and unwritten rules covered during the workshop.
The spring schedule for Faculty Instructional Technology Workshops is available. Workshop and Brown Bag topics include WordPress faculty web sites, Bb Discussion Board, Video Captioning, creating videos for your courses, delivering Bb tests and quizzes, and getting started with Blackboard. Please visit the Faculty Instructional Technology Workshops web page for workshop descriptions, dates, times, locations, and registration.
