CANCELED: Teaching and Learning Center Workshop: 'Getting Back on Track: Helping Students Move from Academic Risk to Academic Success' - April 7


Come and join the conversation during this Teaching and Learning Center workshop, “Getting Back on Track: Helping Students Move from Academic Risk to Academic Success,” on Tuesday, April 7, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in Chase Hall 109. Presented by Aimee Woznick and Sara Reese, director and assistant director of the Academic Commons.

Students who lose good academic standing are often most at risk of departing from the college before they earn a degree. When a student falls into academic warning or academic probation, it can be discouraging and disorienting both for the student and for his or her academic adviser. In this workshop, participants will learn about the myriad factors that cause students to lose good academic standing and how to motivate students to get back on track to realize their potential, whatever their unique circumstances. We will discuss how to approach challenging conversations on topics like losing (and potentially regaining) financial aid eligibility and how to help students navigate complex policies so they can get back in good shape. Advisers will also come away with a few simple but critical strategies they can implement right away to help students make difficult academic, professional, and life choices—even when it seems there are no good choices. 

Please register through the Workshop Management System.
