Webinar featuring Dan Chambliss:
Personal, meaningful relationships with profs and peers play a decisive role in a student’s collegiate success. Dan Chambliss, co-author of How College Works, argues that carefully nurtured relationships with mentors and classmates, not drastic changes to curricula, are the key to improving higher education. Chambliss will share a set of inexpensive interventions that both educators and administrators can make to yield substantial improvements.
- Relationships with educators and peers are the most important factor in a student’s success
- The first few weeks of college are crucial, and set the tone for a student’s remaining time at an institution
- Large classes, not small classes, are better for students
- Easy and inexpensive changes in the classroom will bring students and educators together
