Posted on 4/17/2017 8:49:06 AM

All faculty and teaching associates are invited to attend this last Reflective Practice Large Group Meeting on Thursday, April 20, 2017, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. in the HUB Monongahela Room.

Presenters John Crispell, Linda Jennings, and Lara Homsey-Messer, from the departments of Math, Music, and Anthropology respectively, will discuss how they develop and manage their dual enrolled classes to meet the needs of undergraduate and graduate students in their various disciplines. They will address issues like course structure, homework assignments, testing, and presentations among others. Join us for the conversation to learn more or share your expertise about how to teach an effective dual enrolled course.

John Crispell is a faculty member in the Mathematics Department, whose work focuses on computational methods and analysis for applied problems. He teaches both graduate and undergraduate courses in computational and applied mathematics, operations research, and stochastic.

Lara Homey-Messer is a faculty member in the Anthropology Department, whose work focuses on environmental reconstruction and archaeological geology. She is also a graduate faculty in the MA in Applied Archaeology program and consults with her departmental Archaeological Services unit. She teaches both graduate and undergraduate courses in environmental archaeology, geoarchaeology, soils, and applied/public archaeology.

Linda Jennings is a faculty member in the Music Department. As a cellist, her main area of focus is teaching performance classes such as applied lessons and ensemble classes, although she also teaches music theory and history classes. Another area of emphasis is string music education. She is the director of the IUP String Project, a community outreach program for young string students in the community as well as a teacher training program for IUP students. The course she will talk about was designed to support the teacher training program for undergraduate and graduate students.

Refreshments will be provided.
