Our second faculty colloquium for the academic year will feature two presentations focused on serving our current students.

Screeners are Coming … Will We Be Ready?
Dave Sanders

For the next 20 years, our universities will be primarily educating and serving the “Screeners,” a distinctive generation following the enormous cohort of Millennials. Because of the robust Millennial focus, educators, youth workers and churches have barely glanced at this new generation. While in its infancy, research on Screeners indicates marked differences from Millennials in almost every way. Utilizing the lens of Generational Theory may provide a beneficial approach for identifying and strategizing our engagement with Screeners in our classrooms. Like it or not, they’re coming in the next few years, and they will require a whole new approach on several of the educational fronts we have become accustomed to in our teaching pedagogy. Preparing over the next two years will establish Judson as an institution where Screeners will thrive and flourish. So, let’s do the work necessary to get ready for the Screeners!”

New Adventures in HiFi: Lessons from the Honors International Faculty Institute
Craig Kaplowitz

Grounded in the experience at the 2017 Honors International Faculty Institute, this presentation will explore the characteristics of Honors pedagogy and common elements it shares with good teaching practices more generally. Some framing questions include: What is Honors? What should I expect from Honors students? Is Honors pedagogy any different from simply good pedagogy? If a student asks for an Honors offering of a course, what are some ways I can accommodate them? Come explore Honors, whether you teach with The Honors Program, are interested in what’s going on in Honors, or are curious about trends in teaching and learning.

The colloquium will be held on Tuesday, January 30, at 11:00-12:30 in the Reed  Room. Refreshments will be served!
