“Relationships are the beating heart of the undergraduate experience” (Felten & Lambert, 2020).
“Decades of research demonstrate the transformative potential and the lasting legacies of a relationship-rich college experience” (Felten & Lambert, 2020). [introduction, p. 1]
In this workshop, participants will apply research findings on the power of relationship-rich higher education to their own fall 2021 re-entry teaching context. Each participant will examine one of their own syllabi to identify places where they might increase the role of relationships in learning (e.g., faculty and students, students and students, and students and people outside the course). They will plan to implement a few small changes.

This event is part of a week of virtual re-entry sessions where we look at ways to promote deep learning for all students. Each session features small, researched steps faculty can take and provides brief periods of time for hands-on course planning. Sessions held on Zoom to accommodate travel schedules.
