Event Details

Do you wonder why students come to class unprepared despite clear instructions in the syllabus and your emphatic parting words at the end of each class about reading and/or preparing for classes? If you do, and it concerns you, you’re not alone!! Lack of student preparation for class is a common problem that leads far too many exasperated instructors into the trap of using valuable class time to summarize readings for students, give endless quizzes, and threaten with penalty points──actions that rarely solve the problem and, in fact, may exasperate it. But what can you do?

The better solution is to design your courses so that students can’t do well without effectively completing readings and other assigned activities. Attend this workshop for advice and strategies to counter this problem.
