College students come from many different backgrounds with varying levels of scientific and general academic experience. How do we assess our students’ readiness to engage in scientific coursework? How can we construct inclusive classes that are designed for students with different levels of experience? What supports can we provide for our students so they can succeed in the classroom and in the laboratory? In this kickoff to the 2018 Scientific Teaching in Practice webinar series, Karin Gosselink, Director of the Academic Strategies Program and Associate Director of Writing & Tutoring at the Yale University Center for Teaching and Learning, will present strategies and facilitate discussion on working with underprepared students in first year courses and increasing student success in more advanced courses. Participants are encouraged to share their experiences, resources and ideas for working with underprepared students. Please join us for this interactive and engaging discussion.
