Learning strategies can help our students succeed. Many times, students are unprepared for the rigorous amounts of work and information expected in college courses so when they sit down in the classroom, they aren't even sure where to begin the learning process. In the Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning, we focus on learning-centered teaching strategies to help students learn, and faculty teach. By ensuring our students know how to learn, we can better prepare our students for success.
If you've ever wanted your students to learn more deeply and achieve more success, students must learn how to learn. If you've been frustrated by students who seem unmotivated and disengaged, we want to help prepare you with the best practices to do so.
Communicate about student needs and ensure our students receive the support they need to succeed.
Faculty spend more time with students than anyone else on campus, making them critical for student persistence and success. Early Action is a way to provide students with needed support early in the semester. Participating in Early Action notifies our Student Success Initiatives (SSI) team to reach out to students, offer support, and connect them with campus resources. The SSI team is focused on providing holistic goal-oriented and strength-based support to students with Early Action referrals. Sometimes, students are not aware of the processes at the University, do need support with our technology, or are unsure about how to access the many academic support resources on campus. By having a one-to-one interaction through phone or email, we can better understand the students' needs and partner with them in finding a path forward for the semester
