Room 428, Armory Building 
 

Have you every stopped to think about the implications of the phrase enhancing teaching and learning that is used so often these days? What roles do teachers and students play in this enhancement adventure? Usually the focus is placed on improving teaching, and rightly so; but research shows that helping student learn how to learn is just as important. Come join us as we discuss the whys, how-tos and results of incorporating learning how to learning activities, assessments, and resources into the undergraduate classroom.  This is a workshop that builds on the theme of the 2017 Faculty Retreat.
