Campus Learning Community
The Center for Faculty Excellence (supported by Title III) would like to invite Faculty and Staff members to participate in a Campus Learning Community to discuss Dr. Saundra Mc Guire's book, Teach Students How to Learn: Strategies You Can Incorporate Into Any Course to Improve Student Metacognition, Study Skills, and Motivation. Our goal is to learn from Dr. McGuire's research and to apply those insights to improving the SSU student learning process and our student-centered environment.
The Center for Faculty Excellence will hold two book discussion sessions, one at the end of March and the other one in mid-April. Please REGISTER HERE to indicate your interest in joining the group by Friday, January 20, 2017.
The first 15 Faculty and/or Staff members who register and participate in the Campus Learning Community will receive a complimentary copy of the text.
The slides of the presentation Dr. McGuire gave at SSU are available here.
