Event Details

This workshop is especially suited for faculty members who teach freshmen classes that require assessments of student knowledge and understanding of reading material. Dr. Jade Wexler will introduce faculty members to research-based strategies that can be incorporated into regular course material with the expectation of increased efficiency for instruction and improved student pass rate.

Dr. Wexler (University of Maryland) will present strategies that faculty members can use to facilitate student comprehension of expository text (e.g., textbooks, reading passages, articles).  Dr. Wexler is the co-author of several textbooks that relate to facilitating reading comprehension in struggling students. While most of her research focuses on adolescent learners, the strategies that she will present relate directly to college faculty members who are teaching freshman courses that require reading comprehension (Biology, Chemistry, History, Humanities, etc.).

Lunch provided - Registration required.

Sponsored by Center for Educational Accountability, Vice Provost of Student and Faculty Success, and the Center for Teaching and Learning.
