8:35-8:40am Union 3110 Breakfast and Welcome: Kristin Koepke, CATL Director This event is created to support you as we transition our university and ourselves to being reflective practitioners and using LENS results as part of the reflective process. We invite you to join us at this event with your first round of LENS reports in hand. The event is created and structured to support time for learning about various techniques while also providing time to ponder, write, question, and discuss aspects of LENS reports.
8:40-9:20am Union 3110 The Change to LENS and Reflective Teaching At this event, we invite you to be part of the discussion about how LENS provides an opportunity to shift our campus culture to using student feedback in more meaningful and useful ways. We will share why LENS can help with that shift and how the LENS feedback gives us opportunity for intentional reflection. And, why that is a GOOD thing!
9:20 - 10:20am Union 3110 Interpreting the LENS Items
