Faculty: Gain advice on bridging student-faculty differences during Jan. 24 UCITE session

Students and faculty members are different, and not just in terms of age. There are other important differences, especially when it comes to attitudes toward learning and the respective roles teachers and students play in the classroom. As teachers, faculty members need to be aware of and understand these differences in order to influence the learning process in a positive way.

The next UCITE session, on Thursday, Jan. 24, will examine faculty-student differences in attitudes toward learning and the learning community. How do these differences affect learning? Which differences are irreconcilable and which ones can be bridged? And for those differences that can be narrowed, who should do the changing?

The discussion will take place from noon to 1 p.m. in the Herrick Room, located on the ground floor of the Allen Memorial Medical Library building. Please use the Adelbert Road doors.

Pizza lunch and sodas will be provided at this session. To help estimate the amount to order, RSVP to ucite@case.edu.
