Spring 2024 Pedagogy Circle Meeting

March 6 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Meeting students where they are and maintaining academic standards


The session will begin with brief presentations by Professors Jane Rose, Kenny Kincaid and Deepa Majumdar. Here are some suggestions for framing our conversation:

  • What happens to academic standards if we continue meeting students where they are – without limit?
  • What happens to serving student needs if our academic standards are unrealistic?
  • How do we accomplish both goals? By balancing them?
  • Should our solutions vary by field of study and course level?
  • Anything else!

You are encouraged to share your ideas and experiences at this virtual Zoom-Synchronous event.  Please have Agenda & Activity Sheet available during session.

Co-sponsored by the Dept. of History, Philosophy, Politics and Economics and the Center for Faculty Excellence, the Pedagogy Circle is a forum where faculty gather to discuss what they love most – issues and problems relevant to teaching practices. Participants bring valuable insights and input to these meetings, but also benefit – through discussion, shared teaching tips, etc.

For more information visit the Pedagogy Circle webpage.


Virtual via Zoom. Register for connection information.


This forum is open to all faculty. In-coming faculty who are new to teaching are especially welcome, as are LTLs and CLs.
