Student Retention Strategy: Transform College Instructors into Dynamic Teachers

Colleges and universities are challenged with bored students, low teacher evaluations, and high drop-out rates. And, as you know, your educational institution earns a blemish every time a student is unable to complete a course of study or perform well on exams and learn class materials. But you can reach your student retention objectives by addressing the crux of the issue: student engagement—or lack thereof.

Learn from education specialist Laura Porreca how to give those on the front lines—your teaching staff and faculty—the resources they need to reengage students in the learning process. Porreca will help you equip your professors, instructors, and staff with new ways to boost academic achievement, as well as the drive to achieve. You’ll learn what great teachers do differently from others, which instructional strategies work best with adult learners, and how to turn boring lectures into engaging lessons. Plus, Porreca will explain how to capitalize on staff collaboration and professional development opportunities to promote long-term gains in your institution’s classroom practices.

This how-to session will show you how to develop dynamic, active teachers who motivate students, promote collaborative classrooms, inspire academic ambition, and spark a love of learning. By putting Porreca’s strategies into practice, you’ll simultaneously increase student achievement, reduce attrition, and turnout better evaluations. You can teach teachers to be your best student retention allies.
