In politics, the old adage “having a seat at the table” is often used to refer to those in positions of power, influence and policy making. This poster exhibit highlights a few of the women who have held political office and had “a seat at the table” in decision making for the Commonwealth.
This exhibit tells the stories of freshmen year from participants in a student success intiative, WKU Freshmen Guided Pathway (FGP). This cohort of first-time, full-time students who graduated from one of five high schools in Warren County represent the typical WKU freshman in terms of academic achievement prior to admission and their demographic makeup.
FGP assists students as they negotiate the often difficult affective and academic shifts between high school and college. Learn more about the program in this exhibit, presented by the Kelly M. Burch Institute for Transformative Practices in Higher Education, Office of Strategic Communications and Marketing, the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences, the WKU Center for Literacy, and the Kentucky Museum.
Gazing Deeply showcases how WKU’s backyard—the unique landscape of Mammoth Cave—is being studied, interpreted, and inspiring action on environmental change. Coinciding with the UNESCO Conservation of Fragile Karst Resources: A Workshop on Sustainability and Community and Earth Day’s 50th anniversary in 2020, this exhibition is a collaborative effort between arts and science faculty and students that highlights one of the most well-known and vital natural landscapes in the world.
As we all continue to strive to provide our students with diverse, equitable and inclusive instruction, we invite you to join us for a discussion of Teaching with Transparency. The goal of Teaching with Transparency is to help students understand how and why they are learning course content in particular ways, and extensive research provided through the Transparency in Learning and Teaching project shows us that when we make our pedagogy explicit, Underrepresented Minority and First-Generation Students experience more success.
Through this hands-on, in-person workshop, faculty will get an overview of Teaching with Transparency practices, evaluate current practices, and work in small groups to identify adjustments we might make to our own assignments.
