Conducting Effective Peer Observations of Teaching

Peer observations of teaching are a standard requirement on the road to tenure because high-quality peer feedback can spur professional growth. But what goes into an effective peer observation? This session is designed for faculty who would like to invite peer observation and for those who conduct peer observations. It focuses on strategies for (1) initiating and conducting a peer observation and on (2) frameworks for providing and using feedback after an observation. Bring your questions about peer observation to this interactive session.

Engaging and Retaining Transfer Students (The Other First-Year student)

Transfer students across the nation are growing at an increasing rate. Today, they make up 38% of all students in higher education. That’s a lot! Transfer students help build and maintain our enrollment, but it’s our job to make sure they are set up for success. Sometimes, we tend to think transfer students don’t need the same support as first-time in college students, as they have had prior college experience. However, transfer students face many of the same challenges as first-time in college students, if not more. Learn about our transfer student population and how you can ease their transition and put them on their Pace Path to success. this session will be facilitated by Carolyn Endick - Associate Director, Transfer Student Experience, Center for Academic Excellence.
