Graduate Student Workshops

Location: Graduate Student Center 305

Summary: In this workshop, we will consider multiple interpretations of the “challenging student” and explore potential reasons for their behaviors. Additionally, we will discuss how these behaviors can inform our strategy to improve student achievement both inside and outside classroom. Effective techniques for preventing and eliminating power struggles, motivating students, and fostering positive relationships will be among the topics addressed.
