Inviting and Inspiring Men to Learn: Gendered Pedagogical Considerations for Undergraduate Teaching & Learning Environments Jason Laker, San Jose State University The proportions of male students enrolling in and graduating from college has been declining for years, particularly among low-income, Latino, and African-American men. For instance, GVSU has a 60/40 female-male ratio. Male students are underrepresented in high-impact learning experiences, and over-represented in incidents of alcohol abuse, violence, and other disruptive circumstances. The media often frames these matters in combative and stigmatizing terms, pitting men and women against each other. The purpose of this session is to reclaim the university as a learning community, examining male students' participation in higher education in gendered terms; and to identify capacity-building pedagogical and support strategies for successful outcomes for all students.

Conducting Efficient and Effective Meetings Christine Rener & Dana Munk, Pew FTLC

Meetings bring people together for a multitude of purposes, some goal-oriented and others aimed at building relationships. Bringing multiple perspectives to bear on a problem can yield richer results that can be generated by any one individual. While the meeting convener has the responsibility for executing a great meeting, participants also need to fully engage. This session offers suggestions for both meeting conveners and participants aimed at increasing productivity and minimizing potential conflicts.
