Student Experiences Project Ascend Program

Mon, 12 Feb 2024 12:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Most similar to the original TAPs, the externally run Ascend program asks students to complete a 5-10 minute survey with carefully designed questions developed and tested by leading researchers. The questions help faculty identify how students’ experiences in the classroom could be supporting or getting in the way of learning. This enables educators to take targeted actions to influence these experiences and, thereby, improve learning conditions over time.

This Faculty Learning Community is designed to pilot the Ascend program at JMU with the goal of more widely launching the program in Fall 2024. If you are interested in participating or learning more on how this program works, register below before the deadline noted.

Date & Time: TBD with participants after registering

Location: TBD

Facilitator: Gilpatrick Hornsby, CFI
