Keep on Teaching: Session 2
Beyond the first few weeks, buoy your students and yourself.

Engaging students is the main challenge that faculty members say they’re facing right now. Beyond the first few classes, the goal is to maintain or boost attendance, participation, and general motivation. At the same time, professors themselves are exhausted — and there’s only so much support and flexibility they can offer. What are some winning ways to set expectations and make coursework meaningful while keeping your workload manageable?

Continue the semester in conversation with teaching experts and your colleagues around the country on Friday, February 10 at 2 p.m. ET.

Join us as we discuss:
  • Fostering student motivation and engagement
  • How to recognize and mitigate instructor burnout
  • Supporting students without overextending yourself

This interactive session is the second in a two-part series. To sign up, you do not need to have attended the first one, but you do need to be a subscriber to our free Teaching newsletter.
