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.

Class discussions, whether held face-to-face or online, are a great teaching strategy to get students talking about the material and how it relates to them both inside and outside of the classroom, but how might we strengthen our discussions to get students to think deeper and more critically?  In this session, we will explore effective discussion strategies utilized by faculty across campus and talk about things such as students who either dominate or seem to not participate in the conversation, managing difficult conversations, bringing a discussion back on topic, and more.
