Requesting AGC approval to become mandatory for all new degree seeking students starting Winter 2014
“Students are starting to identify their learning style in the activities that we learn in class.”
“I feel that my students are more open to talk with instructors outside of the classroom. The professor communication was requirement outside of the class and I find many of my students stay after class to ask questions.”
“I enjoyed getting to know the students in a different format.”
