The return to in-person teaching last year brought with it a high degree of uncertainty for students and faculty. Professors reported that stress, fatigue, and anxiety contributed to higher levels of student disengagement, disconnection, and languishing than in pre-pandemic courses. Homewood faculty got together in August to discuss their observations of student disengagement and brainstorm strategies to proactively address their concerns.
At faculty request, the Center for Teaching Excellence & Innovation (CTEI) is scheduling a follow-up event for faculty to discuss how things are progressing this fall and whether they have new issues or concerns they want to share, as well as any helpful strategies or solutions they implemented. Please join your colleagues from 1:30 to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 8, for some light refreshments in the Garrett Room (CTEI offices) or online.
