What Students Wish Their Professors Knew

September 22 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Covid-19 crisis has given new significance to the dynamics of the online classroom. As the fall semester begins in full virtual or hybrid mode, what lessons from last spring are colleges and professors applying, and how are they incorporating students’ feedback to best support their learning?

Faculty development was a big focus over the summer. Now, what insights from students themselves can make for a better fall semester? What approaches do they appreciate and respond to, and what moves can be counterproductive? The What Students Wish Their Professors Knew virtual forum will continue the conversation on innovation in the online classroom today.

Our panel of faculty and students will include:
– Laura L. Carruth, director of the Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning and associate professor in the Neuroscience Institute at Georgia State University
– Vikki S. Katz, associate professor of communication, Rutgers University
– Luna Laliberte, Class of 2021, Rutgers University
– Taylor Trigo-Edwards, Class of 2021, student body president, University of Texas at San Antonio

The panel will explore how instructors can:
– Build a sense of connection with students
– Ease any information overload they may be experiencing
– Support their motivation and time management
