Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Apr 12, 2019
suite 309, DeWitt Wallace Library

Paul Overvoorde (Associate Dean of Faculty) and Nancy Bostrom (Associate Director of Assessment) will present “Rising Sophomore Voices: course choice, major selection’ and their first year experiences." On Assessment Day in fall 2017, incoming first year students were asked about their definitions and perceptions of the liberal arts, as well as their approach to their time at Macalester. This past August, as these same students entered their Sophomore year, they were asked to reflect on aspects of their first year in college. We'll share data about what these rising sophomores told us about their first year at Macalester, how they approached choosing courses, and what factors were important for selecting a major and the timing of this declaration. Please join us to share your perspective on what these data tell us about our students. All faculty welcomed. Lunch will be provided.
