Helping Students Struggle: Focusing Effort on What Really Matters

Some of the struggles students experience when they take courses at Georgia Tech are useful and contribute to their learning. Other struggles, however, feel unproductive to students—and then they adamantly complain about you and/or the course at the end of the term in their evaluations. What makes the difference? When do students view their work in a course as worthwhile? What makes students feel that you want them to succeed? How can you help students value their course experience with you? Join your colleagues for a lively discussion about rigor, struggle, and the rewards of teaching.

Lunch will be provided.
