OOTB 2016-- Out of the Box and Beyond the Margins-Connecting with the modern student
This winter 2016 OOTB was preceded by a "Book club" discussion.
Kristen Renn and Robert Reason, College Students in the United States: Characteristics, experiences and outcomes, 2012
College Students in the United States accounts for contemporary and anticipated student demographics and enrollment patterns, a wide variety of campus environments and a range of outcomes including learning, development, and achievement. Throughout the book, the differing experiences, needs, and outcome of students across the range of "traditional" (18-24 years old, full-time students) and non-traditional (for example, adult and returning learners, veterans, recent immigrants) are highlighted. The book is organized, for use as a stand-alone resource, around Alexander Astin's Inputs-Environment-Outputs (I-E-O) framework.
The Dean's office purchased the books for the first 20 Faculty interested in participating.
OOTB 2016 outcomes:
- Creation of webpage resource to help faculty direct distressed students to appropriate resources
- Tips in CLAS Acts with reference to articles on the Blackboard site and related articles (see these issues:
