More information
Across the country more first-generation students are enrolling in higher education; and at Northern Arizona University our first-generation students make up almost 30% of the undergraduate population, and 40% of the freshmen class. Yet, retention and graduation rates for first-generation students fall behind that of continuing-generation students, both at NAU and nationwide. Join a team of faculty and staff who are providing training certification to increase your awareness of the needs of first-generation students to better serve them in the classroom, in advising, and in student services.

More information
Are you interested in using collaborative learning strategies in your class? In this two-part workshop, participants can expect to discuss collaborative learning and begin to plan a collaborative learning activity using NAU supported resources such as Google Docs. We will explore how Google Docs can foster collaborative learning and create and share activities in Google Docs. Participants should bring their own devices and plan on about one hour’s worth of work between sessions. We will share resources to further exploration after the workshops.
