Presidential Teaching Professor Seminar

Connecting with Students in the Classroom: Enhancing Cognitive Development

Dr. Carole Minor
Presidential Teaching Professor
Department of Counseling, Adult, and Higher Education

Student’s attitudes toward knowledge can be characterized by stages they proceed through during their years at college. As they travel through different intellectual and moral levels of development, students should be allowed to voice their opinions and beliefs, as defined by their perspectives, in a classroom environment which embraces this growth.

Dr. Minor will discuss these stages of development and how she facilitates intellectual development in her own teaching. Bring a syllabus to work with in incorporating the ideas discussed into your own class(es).

Everyone is welcome!
