Making the Most of the End of the Semester

Date Released: 27 April 2017

At the end of the semester, it can seem as if we should all collapse in a heap and just breathe a sigh of relief that it's almost over. Certainly many of our students feel that way. And for professors, creating a meaningful course ending may not be your top priority. Creating the perfect final exam, grading, handing out course evaluations, finishing up those University committee commitments - there are a lot of competing demands on faculty members' time.

But if we can gather the energy to take a few moments to create a more satisfying ending, and then reflect on our courses - on what went well, what might not have gone as well as we had hoped - we can make substantial improvements on subsequent courses, and save both time and energy in the future. 

Join us on Thursday, April 27, 2017 from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. in the Herrick Room, which is on the ground floor of the Allen building (at the corner of Adelbert and Euclid). Pizza lunch and sodas will be provided at this session.
