Science

Guidelines for Helping Students with Writing Full Lab Reports

Presenter

Dr. Janna Blum, Assistant Professor of Chemistry

 

Description

 
We will discuss general strategies for assisting students with the writing of lab reports and when you can help and when the student must speak with his or her instructors, i.e. in the case of incomplete data. Chemistry lab reports will be used as an example, however, this should be generally applicable for other sciences such as physics and biology.

Tutoring

Telling is Not Teaching, But Tutoring Is: Instantly Establishing the Teacher-Student Relationship

Presenter

Dr. Greg Kelley, Assistant Professor of English

 

Description


T
eaching and learning involve interaction among persons.  Transformative education is much more than a one-way flow of information.  A studentís pursuit of one-on-one help allows some of the most intense and intimate of educational interactions.  The tutorial situation thus makes great demands on the sincerity, factuality, and ethics of its participants.   In this workshop session we will explore ways to establish mutual trust and respect for tutor and student alike.
