Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Feb 9, 2018
suite 309, DeWitt Wallace Library

Nancy Bostrom (Assistant Director of Assessment) and Paul Overvoorde (Associate Dean of the Faculty) will present "Incoming student perspectives on the liberal arts and Macalester."  What do incoming Macalester students perceive as advantages and disadvantages of a liberal arts education? What's a subject first years have never taken but are excited to explore? How do these starting students intend to chart their academic path through Macalester? During orientation this year, we asked incoming first year students to share their perspectives on these, and related, questions. We'll begin this session with a summary of responses and then open the floor for a discussion of how these responses might inform your work. We'll conclude by considering next steps, and welcome your input into these plans.  All faculty welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
