Active Learning Using Decision-Making Strategies

This session is led by Lindsay Cohn, political science. Students often find that simulations help them understand abstract concepts better than just reading about them. This session explains and demonstrates some of the games or simulations done frequently in Cohn’s class. In the second part of the session, we will brainstorm ways to apply these game types (negotiation, strategy) to other disciplines. Sponsored by the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost.

Teaching First-Year Students at UNI: What We Know From Cornerstone

This session is led by April Chatham-Carpenter, Nikki Zumbach Harken, Deedee Heistad, Susan Hill and Susan Roberts-Dobie.  How well are UNI's incoming first-year students prepared for college? What do they need to know to be successful in college? Faculty who have taught UNI's Cornerstone course talk about their experiences teaching first-year students, along with some strategies for helping the first-year students in your classes acclimate to UNI. Sponsored by the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost.

New Academic Policies: What You Need To Know

Four new academic policies have been put into place this year: the Student Academic Ethics Policy (a revised policy); Class Attendance and Make-Up Work (a revised policy); Personal Electronic Devices in the Classroom (a new policy); and 12.01 Student Academic Grievance (a revised policy). Gayle Rhineberger-Dunn, educational policies committee, and Mike Licari, associate provost for academic affairs, will be at this session to highlight the changes in these policies and answer questions about them. Sponsored by the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost.
