We often hear about UMass Amherst students as statistics: GPAs, number of majors, or demographic percentages. But what do we know about our students as learners? And how can we, as faculty, support them during their critical years at UMass Amherst? There is no better time for this discussion than right at the start of the fall semester, when we enter the classroom and start to form relationships with our students.
Join three faculty members whose teaching practices have been recognized across campus in this breakfast discussion about supporting UMass Amherst students in and out of the classroom:
- Catherine Dimmitt (Student Development), 2011 Distinguished Teaching Award winner
- Judi LaBranch (Kinesiology), 2015 College Outstanding Teaching Award winner
- Ramesh Sitaraman (Computer Science), 2014 College Outstanding Teaching Award winner
This event is part of the First Year, First Friday Series and open to all first-year faculty.
