Engaging and Including Student Veterans in the Classroom
May 10, 2018 @ 3:20 pm - 5:00 pm | Humanities 2, Room 359
Writing Program Pedagogy Workshop
The number of student veterans is rapidly growing, with more than a million currently enrolled in US colleges. Many institutions support veterans by promoting access to student services but overlook what actually happens in the classroom. What do we need to know as instructors about student veterans’ learning practices, literacies, and instructional needs? This workshop will enhance your cultural competence and provide new pedagogical tools to engage and include student veterans in our classrooms.
