Post-Covid Strategies for Academic Success

Our proposed webinars and professional training sessions and resources align to national effort to transform the college student experience and create equitable learning environments through innovative, evidence-based practices that increase degree attainment. Research shows that when students experience a sense of belonging, support on campus and in the classroom, and engaged in te learning process, they’re more likely to persist through academic challenges and earn their degrees. 

SUBR Fall Workshop Series: The Inclusive Syllabus

As Academic Affairs is ready to implement the Concourse Syllabus Management Sustem as part of our instructional tools, we found it very timely to host a workshop on Inclusive Syllabus. 
When students read your syllabus, they are not just wondering, “Which textbook should I buy?” and “When is the midterm?” They are also wondering, “Can I succeed in this course?” and “Do I belong in this field?” The messages students receive early on can shape their perceived answers to these questions, and impact the way they experience your course throughout the term.
