Teaching Today's Students
During the 2014-2015 academic year, the Paul C. Reinert, S.J. Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning will offer a series of programs highlighting considerations, rewards, and challenges of Teaching Today's Students. We will focus on a broad range of topics, including: understanding who "today's students" are, fostering self-directed learning, promoting higher-order thinking, creating inclusive learning environments, teaching international students, and many others.
