March EV-Anar: Taking Flight with ERAU-W Career Services

Did you know that college graduates with co-op/internship experience are often preferred by employers and may receive 15% higher salaries than their peers? The Career Services Department at the Worldwide Campus actively promotes career resources and networking with quality employers (including co-ops/internships and Industry/Career Expos) to broaden students’ education beyond the classroom and engage in real world opportunities.

Special Session

Each year, your RCTLE team offers four Special Sessions. These are 45-minute in-depth explorations of a teaching best practice. Don’t miss our first Special Session of 2018.

Questions are wonderful learning tools. A well-thought-out question can open minds, facilitate cognitive dissonance, and encourage critical thinking. In education, instructors often focus on students’ abilities to answer questions, but it is just as important for students to ask questions. Join Cristina Cottom, a Research Specialist for your RCTLE, as she discusses 10 strategies that you can use to encourage your students to ask better questions.

This session will be offered live through the RCTLE EagleVision Room on:

  • Thursday, March 15th @ 11 AM ET
  • Thursday, March 15th @ 8 PM ET

Teaching Tip

During the first week of class, be sure to read and respond to each student in the Introduce Yourself discussion. Note any interesting facts and/or useful information about the student on your roster. This will help you engage in meaningful ways with the student throughout the term. Use this information to connect the content to their experience, ask probing questions and encourage students to continue their learning outside of “class”.
