Monday, November 4, Birge Hall 158, 5:30-7pm
The last two freshman classes have broken records for size and diversity. Come and participate in a convivial discussion of how these changes will impact teaching and learning at UW-Madison. Our panelists will address three relevant issues: What the incoming first-years are like (Nathan Phelps, FIG program); How summer session can (or cannot) help this bolus of students graduate on time (Aphra Mednick, Summer Term and Precollege Programming), and; since larger cohorts imply more dependence on online and large enrollment classes, what do data say about learning in these environments (Matt Hora, Adult and Higher Education).
Beer, wine, soft drinks, and appetizers will be served.
