Does your course address how to access class materials, class linked academic support, and other academic support programs?
Introduce students to your Blackboard Learn course shell, and have them explore the TIPS course in Blackboard Learn.
Develop clear strategies to encourage office visits with professor.
Include Cline Library course modules. The following innovative resources are available through Cline Library:
The creation of interchangeable, generalized digital content for integration directly into courses and assignments.
- Putting discipline and course specific digital content for integration directly into courses & assignments.
- The mapping of program and course learning objectives to our own research objectives to create practical and assessable student learning outcomes.
- The integration of research support and educational content/tools directly into key assignments.
- The creation of teachers guides on how to integrate and teach to research based content and resources.
- Designing effective uses of class specific research approached through the use of Peer TAs.
Share Computer Lab hours with students:
Introduce students to NAU’s GPS (Grade Performance Status) program.
Use mid-term grades to receive formative feedback.
Insure that Class-linked Academic Support Program is stigma-free.
Offer nominal points to attend office hours with the instructor or to participate in study groups.
Decide which communication tools you’ll use to keep students informed—such as a Listserv, class mailing list (requires CAS login), discussion boards, email, or social network sites like Facebook or Twitter—and then teach students how to use the tools you chose.
Make a campus resource list available on your Blackboard shell.
Use a syllabus format that matches assessments with strategies and resources students may need. See example below:
Include in-person field trips or online live chats, prerecorded videos, or podcasts to introduce students to the Cline Library, Student Learning Centers, the Writing Center, and other campus resources that they might not know about.
