Session 10: Learning Communities – 2:00 – 3:00 p.m.

Presenters: David Tom and Joan Petrusky

Research has documented the impact learning communities can have on retention and persistence, as well as on perceptions of student learning. Columbus State already has a number of learning community options for students (e.g., Developmental Education Block, Preferred Pathways), but few options are available for undecided students or students who are not associated with either of the aforementioned programs. In this way, Arts and Sciences Learning Communities fills a specific need and has the potential to reach a greater number of students since our LCs have no other criteria for enrollment beyond completion of course prerequisites. In addition, students in the Arts & Sciences LCs will get one hour per week with either an IPAR faculty member or Columbus State advisor focusing on topics such as methods for studying, managing schedules, how to be a good student, etc. Join us to hear about the pending launch of our LCs as well as to let us know if you have an interest in teaching a future LC blocked course!

Session 18: Online Teaching—Tell Your Story! – 2:00-3:00 p.m.

Presenters: Ann Palazzo and staff from Distance Education and Instructional Support (DEIS)

Online faculty have exciting stories to tell about what it means to work with students in the Distance Learning format.
