Thirty-seven years ago, when Professor Molly Rappert began teaching, she was under the false illusion that effective teaching only meant that she could convey content. It was many years before she understood how important it was to set expectations, match her assessments to her goals, create the right classroom environment that genuinely suited her, and have a curriculum that was a binding contract that dealt with her worst. scenario cases and more.
In this workshop, we will focus on the core elements of the classroom that are critical to providing the expectations, environment, and performance you hope to achieve. Based on the crowdsourcing of 30 award-winning professors, Rappert will guide participants through the process of identifying and implementing aspects most relevant to each individual to help participants structure their education around their personal strengths.
Robert leads the Walton Center for Teaching Effectiveness (a collaborator on this event), is a member of the Teaching Academy and a strong advocate for helping expand teaching experiences on campus at AU. She has won numerous teaching awards, including the Charles and Nadine Baum Award for Teaching Excellence, the Arkansas Graduate Outstanding Teaching Award, and the Marketing Management Association’s National Distinguished Teaching Award. She teaches a graduate course in the Marketing Department, which prepares students for the real-world environment they will soon enter. Rappert has taught courses at all levels, from freshmen seminars to doctoral seminars, and in all class sizes, from large halls to small seminars.
Teaching bag opportunity: Each of the new faculty sessions for 2023-24 will provide opportunities to write a chapter in a file that can be used for assessment or promotion/tenure activities. Teaching Academy members will be on hand to provide directions to the files at each luncheon. The Teaching Academy acts as a collaborator in these events.
