By now, you have received a save the date email regarding our national speaker, Dr. Rebecca Cox, author of The College Fear Factor: How Students and Professors Misunderstand One Another. There will be two events you may attend in order to hear Dr. Cox speak. Dr. Cox will be at Baker for a workshop on February 12th, 2:30-4:00pm. That evening, there will be a dinner event and presentation at the University of Michigan Flint, 5-8pm. Watch out for invitations to those events.
Dr. Cox is an Associate Professor of Education at Simon Fraser University. Her research covers how first-generation college students and professors misunderstand one another.
Here is a link to an interview Dr. Cox did for the University of Illinois about her book which is the topic of the upcoming presentation and workshop. We hope to foster conversations about how we can turn what Dr. Cox has learned through research into best practices in the classroom.
