Spring 2024 Schedule

In this conversation, we will discuss topics that came up during the TRC Book Club's reading of The Impact of a Sense of Belonging in College: Implications for Student Persistence, Retention, and Success edited by Erin M. Bentrim. Our last book club group who read this book was struck by the quote, "Higher education has retained a bias in the direction of welcoming "college-ready students" rather than transforming into an ecosystem of "student-ready colleges"" (McNair et al., 2016). Join us in discussing this idea of building a "student-ready college."

The workshop is open to faculty and staff who have read the book, those planning to join the TRC Book Club this semester, or those who have an interest in the topic. If you would like to read the book this semester with your colleagues, please sign up - discussions will start in mid-February.

Led by Eric Dunnum, English Department

Please join your colleague Eric Dunnum, Associate Professor of English, to discuss artificial intelligence in the discipline of writing. Dr. Dunnum will discuss the importance of academic and ethical writing. We will explore the impact of artificial intelligence on writing, not just in the discipline of English, but across all disciplines. If you are interested in discussing this topic and learning tools for improving your students' writing, this is the workshop for you!

This opportunity will allow faculty and students to learn from each other about uses of artificial intelligence in the classroom. Topics of discussion include examples of how students have used AI or seen it used and concerns they may have. The workshop aims to create a safe and inclusive environment for students to share their experiences with AI in academia and for faculty and staff to listen to their perspectives about how it impacts their lives both now and in the future.
