How to Move Mountains: Getting Students to Prepare for Class

Coffee Break Discussion
Thursday, October 13th, 3:00 p.m.
McKillop 208
Afternoons can be tough! So take a break, come to the CTL for a caffeine and sugar boost while you join with your colleagues in a lively discussion around today’s topic.
 
Class time can be much more effective if students come prepared. But how do we motivate them to do the reading or spend time on the homework without relying on quizzes that increase our workload? A 20-minute video by Dr. Maryellen Weimer, editor of the Teaching Professor, will serve as our launching point for this discussion.

The video is available online at the embedded link. You will be required to log in with your Salve username and password to access the video. If you have difficulties accessing the video, please contact Annette Torrey for a copy.
