Identifying and Supporting Struggling Students

Bronwyn Wallace, CTL Senior Fellow

Graduate Student Workshops

Location: Graduate Student Center 305

Summary: The difficulties that students encounter in our classes are many and varied, and often opaque to us as teachers. This workshop will address strategies for being actively supportive of students who are struggling: how to train yourself to see struggle in your classroom, how to structure conversations with students you think or know are having a tough time, how to incorporate support structures into your classroom as a routine practice, and how to develop elements of course-design that can help to create an accessible environment for your students before the term even begins.
