    Monday Morning Mentor: How Can I Make My Exams More about Learning, Less about Grades?

    Monday Dec 4
    (All Day)

    Maryellen Weimer, PhD, Professor Emerita of Teaching and Learning, Penn State Berks

    Students usually hate exams, and they aren't much fun for teachers either. Rather than advancing the educational experience for learners or helping instructors evaluate students' mastery of the material, exams can lead to 'testy' interactions between students and faculty. Learn how you can transform exams into enhanced opportunities for student learning in this session.

    This session can be accessed after 10:00 AM online at: http://9nl.pw/MUMentors and will be available on demand for one week. 

    Please contact Dr. Oliver Dreon, Director of the Center of Academic Excellence (oliver.dreon@millersville.edu) for the passcode to access the session.

    Monday Morning Mentor: What Do Adjunct Faculty Need to Be Successful in the Online Classroom?

    Monday Dec 11
    (All Day)

    B. Jean Mandernach, PhD, Director of the Center for Innovation in Research and Teaching, Grand Canyon University

    'Welcome to the college. You're on your own.' You'd never treat a full-time faculty member that way. Yet with adjuncts - online ones, especially - that is sometimes only a slight exaggeration of their experience. For online adjuncts, a lack of early information and ongoing support is even more acutely felt than it is by on-campus faculty. Adjuncts' academic experience is typically not as extensive; their familiarity with and access to your institution is certainly not as great; their ability to work things out by walking down the hall with a question - well, they simply don't have it. So they need help, and they need information. But what kind - and on what subjects? You can find out in this session.

    This session can be accessed after 10:00 AM online at: http://9nl.pw/MUMentors and will be available on demand for one week.

    Please contact Dr. Oliver Dreon, Director of the Center of Academic Excellence (oliver.dreon@millersville.edu) for the passcode to access the session.
