Supporting Your Students’ Mental Health and Wellness

This month the CAT partnered with the Dean of Students Office, Wellness Resource Center, and the CARE Team to provide a workshop for faculty to learn how they can support student mental health and wellness.

Beware the Course of Knowledge

How can knowledge be a curse? The term is used by psychologists to refer to the human condition wherein once we know something, or how to do something, it is impossible to re-experience what it was like to be ignorant of it.  The result is that we tend to overestimate how common the knowledge is that we now possess, or how easy it is to be able to perform the activity we now know how to do.

Positive Projects

Positive emotions, such as joy, happiness, and serenity, are more than 'feel good' moments. They can be a pedagogical tool to propel students’ learning and flourishing!


Making the Most of Classroom Polling

Polling tools, sometimes referred to as classroom or student response systems, are great for engaging students in virtual or face-to-face learning environments.
