Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Nov 15, 2013
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Erik Larson, Sociology, will present “Student Perspectives on Academic Advising and Majoring in Natural Science: Evidence and Questions for Further Consideration."  During spring 2013, students in Professor Larson’s Social Science Inquiry course conducted survey research to learn more about students’ experiences at Macalester. This presentation draws on the results of two of these surveys—one concerning academic advising, the other examining students who expressed an interest in majoring in a natural science discipline prior to matriculating. The presentation presents findings from these surveys to raise points of discussion. What do students value in advising? How satisfied are they with advising? Why do some students abandon plans to major in science?  All faculty are welcome.  Lunch will be provided
