Student Entitlement: Truth, Fiction, or Some of Both? (webinar)Wed, 18 Oct 20173:00pm - 4:30pm3/25Mary Ellen Weimer

From the Magna website:

"In recent years, many college instructors would agree that there has been a dramatic increase in students with entitled attitudes. More than likely, you’ve struggled with students who expected academic success without taking personal responsibility for their own learning.

The presence of problematic attitudes in the classroom can be highly disruptive, so it’s important for you to be able to properly react to this type of behavior.

[During this webinar,] you’ll learn about the roots of this behavior, as well as strategies for not only decreasing, but also preventing the potency of entitled students."

Building Community in the Classroom Thu, 26 Oct 20172:30pm - 3:30pm5/25Pat Maher (Cape Breton University; 3M National Teaching Fellow)

Students flourish when they become part of a collaborative and creative community. All too often, courses are focused on squeezing in a maximum amount of content at the expense of the equally important process component of learning. The concept of learning communities, which assist to deepen the degree of learning by spending more time on, and paying greater attention to, process is highlighted as a “high impact practice” in student recruitment and retention literature; and it’s also the ethos of the program I teach in, Community Studies. Whether the setting is a conventional university classroom, a field or forest on the edge of campus, or a local neighbourhood, educators can easily facilitate a learning community through a progression of intra- and interpersonal explorations. This workshop will engage participants in a series of experiential activities that we use in our first-year Community Studies programming – aimed at fostering initiative, leadership, self-awareness, and trust – all factors that underlie effective collaborations for increased learning. Workshop activities will be debriefed from both the participant and facilitator perspectives.
