  • Faculty Talks: Amy Root Clements - Alfred A. Knopf and the Launch of a Publishing Powerhouse

    Monday, February 2, 3:30pm-5:00pm at Fleck Hall, Room 314

    Faculty Talks feature SEU faculty discussing their scholarly or creative work and its influence on their teaching.  In June 1915, recent Columbia University graduate Alfred Knopf and his fiancée, Blanche Wolf, founded a publishing firm that would become regarded by many as the pinnacle of America’s book trade. How did two twentysomethings overcome outsider status to forge a reputation for excellence that has endured well past their lifetimes? From the acquisitions process to graphic design and marketing, Amy Clements explores the cornerstones of this unique literary legacy—and the implications for our entrepreneurial students.  RSVP below at:  More Information Online.

  • Center for Teaching Excellence | Understanding Student Course Evaluation Data

    Friday, February 27, 3:30pm-4:45pm at John Brooks Williams Natural Sciences Center-South Building, Room 186

    How can we as college teachers make the most of the course evaluation data we receive each semester?  What tools do we need in order to interpret our own data accurately, and how can we glean meaningful feedback from it about our own teaching?  In this session, panelists will explain statistical concepts that can help you interpret and contextualize your quantitative data; explore the role of student perspectives in providing feedback; consider the impact of instructor identity; outline strategies for interpreting your qualitative data; and prepare you to answer others' questions about your data.
