Volume 9, Issue 28 - April 9, 2012


Greetings from the Center for Teaching & Learning.

And welcome to week 6. I hope you had a peaceful Easter break.

There will be two events sponsored by ACTL this week. On Thursday (12 April) at 11:30 on the 2nd floor (north) of the Tredway Library Ken Brill, from Student Activities, and Audrey Adamson from Residential Life, will present

Promoting Student Success: The Role of Student Services at Augustana.

In addition to providing an overview of current programs, Ken and Audrey will describe ways that you can work with Student Services toward our shared goal of student success. If you were unable to reserve a spot but are interested in this topic and ways you could support Student Services, please let me know. Ken and Audrey would be more than happy to repeat the session.

On Friday 13 April, Johnna Adam and Darrin Good of the CEC will be on hand to discuss

Academic Internships

as part of the Friday Conversation. (College Center Loft-refreshments at 3:30, discussion starts at 4:00.) They'll discuss everything about academic internships, from the theoretical to the pragmatic and, hopefully, answer any questions you may have. I hope you can join us.

Until then, have a productive week.
