In the Fall 2017 semester, The Provost's Office shared a book by Dr. Saundra McGuire called Teach Students How To Learn.  The campus-wide discussions around Dr. McGuire's work indicated significant interest among faculty, students, and staff.   We are pleased to announce that Dr. Saundra McGuire will join us for two days of workshops, August 23rd & 24th. We hope that you will be able to participate in one or more sessions.

There are three sessions targeted to faculty and staff, with one session being repeated on Friday. There are also three sessions targeted to students. Student sessions are aligned with common class start/end times, so hopefully, some of you will elect to bring your entire class for a student-focused session or encourage them to attend. 

In addition to the agenda, you will also find attached workshop descriptions and the original save the date that was sent with a bio of Dr. McGuire.

On Thursday the sessions will take place in SSB 112 and Friday's sessions will be held in the Charger Union Theatre.
