Interacting with Students in the Classroom and Beyond VII: Forming Relationships: Working with diverse students out of the classroom

  • Date: Thursday, July 24, 2014
  • Time: 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm
  • Location: Preus Library, Hovde Lounge

Are all students equally engaged in taking advantage of opportunities beyond the classroom? How do we encourage all students to seek out personal interaction with us?


Each Thursday throughout June and July we will hold two discussions – one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The morning sessions will be built around the thread – “Making a College Work.” In these sessions we will discuss various aspects of the governance of Luther College, with a focus on what we do and what we might do to help us thrive as an institution moving forward. The afternoon sessions – “Interacting with Students in the Classroom and Beyond” – are devoted to teaching and learning. These sessions require no preparation and are intended as a chance for us to discuss ideas important to our work together. More intensive discussions or workshops may grow out of individual sessions as interest warrants.

A new topic will be covered each week for each of the two themes. Faculty will receive a $25 stipend for any two sessions attended throughout June and July.
