Faculty and instructional staff are often challenged teaching today's students. Contemporary (Or Present-day) students seek higher education for multiple purposes, have a changing demographic profile, enroll in university from a variety of entry points, and expect HE experiences that better meet their needs. These trends are affecting what we teach, how we teach it, and to who whom we teach. Join us in this workshop as we learn how to design classrooms that best challenge and support today's college student.
