Bridgett McGowen-Hawkins presents "Attention-Getting Retention Tools and Tips: Practical Ideas for Faculty."
DESCRIPTION: Your faculty have spent years in the classroom as students and years - or possibly even decades - in their industries as successful professionals. They know their disciplines inside and out, and it shows every day when they step into the classroom.
But there are those days when you look up, and some seats are empty. And you look around at graduation, and there are faces missing that you know should be there. What happened?
In this interactive session, you will know exactly what conditions must exist for your students to want to return to your campus time and time again, and most importantly, you will have techniques you can take back and have faculty implement right away. You will also know precisely what your faculty need to do in their class sessions to ensure students are engaged and are motivated to persist in their studies. Finally, you will receive practical guides to use when engaging in one-on-one or one-to-many conversations with your faculty about practical changes they can make in their classrooms to gain the attention of their students and power-up your campus's retention efforts.
