Academic Roundtable: Stress and the Student Experience
Please join us on Tuesday, May 10, 2016 in the Center for Teaching, Learning & Research at 12:15 pm.
There has been much discussion on Middlebury’s campus about student stress, but little data to inform these conversations. Students in Svea Closser’s ethnographic research methods classes conducted and analyzed interviews with their peers about their experiences with stress. Their findings complicate simple narratives about workload, and suggest that syllabus tweaks are unlikely to make substantial impacts. In this roundtable, students will present the results of their research on the drivers of student stress, and leave the floor open for faculty to discuss potential ways forward.
As with all Academic Roundtables, lunch will be provided. RSVP to Doreen Bernier via email at firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Friday, May 6, 2016.
The Academic Roundtable is co-sponsored by
the Center for Teaching, Learning, & Research and the Library
