Faculty Development Workshop: Leveraging Student Development Theories to Improve Your Teaching Practice - April 7
Join us for a panel presentation and discussion about student development theories that can be used to better understand your students and improve your teaching practice on Friday, April 7, from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. in Butler Library 181B.
Panelists will explore theories from the disciplines of higher education and student affairs administration, adult education, and organizational and behavioral psychology. Following the panelists' brief remarks on theory, we will engage in a discussion of how these theories can inform faculty members' understanding of student learning and adapt their teaching methods to meet the diverse needs of today's college students. Additional remarks, grounded in student development theory, about the impact of academic standards and co-curricular learning opportunities on students' college experience will be shared. Participants will have ample time to ask questions and be actively engaged during this session.
Kimberly Kline, Chair and Professor of Higher Education Administration, Buffalo State
Heather Maldonado, Assistant Dean and Director of Academic Standards, Buffalo State
Andrea Nikischer, Assistant Professor of Adult Education, Buffalo State
Agnieszka Zak-Moskal, Director of Student Success, Villa Maria College
