Faculty Hub Conversation: Last Days of Class
Wednesday, April 12, 9:30 – 10:15 a.m. (in the Faculty Hub or Zoom)
How do you approach the last few days of class? Join the Faculty Hub for a conversation about strategies and activities for wrapping up the semester. We’ll think together about how to structure the last few days of class so that we can capitalize on reflection, make student learning visible, and in doing so, teach our students how to provide useful feedback to us on our teaching. Join us for this opportunity to share ideas, ask questions, and gather feedback from colleagues. This conversation is open to faculty and instructional staff from any disciplinary background.

Register here for the last days of class conversation!
