Midterms are often a very demanding time for students. As they try to manage their academic requirements, they can display signs of diminished personal wellness and self-care, poor academic performance, withdrawing from class participation and an overall disposition of fatigue and indifference. However, these behaviors also can occur when students realize they need additional resources in order to achieve academic success—resources that may go beyond what the faculty would ordinarily provide in their course.
At the next University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education session, James Eller, the Educational Services for Students (ESS) associate director for academic resources, and Jenn DeSantis, ESS assistant director for academic resources, will discuss some of the challenges students face most frequently, as seen by faculty and ESS staff members. To help direct students to the appropriate resources, this session also will provide an overview of the services available through ESS.
This session will be held today (March 9) from noon to 1 p.m. in the Allen Memorial Medical Library’s Herrick Room (use Adelbert Road doors).
Pizza and sodas will be provided.
