We were very pleased to have Maria Macik, Associate Instructional Consultant at the Texas A&M Center for Teaching Excellence, as our keynote speaker. Her presentation, "Reflection across the University: Helping Students Tell Their Stories," recognizes that the student story is a complex one. In addition to academics, some of the activities that students are involved in can include membership in organizations, leadership experiences, employment, and various other educational opportunities, such as student research or internships. As mentors, coaches, advisors, and educators, we can help students tell their stories by encouraging them to make connections across these various experiences. In an engaging session, Maria will share the role reflection plays in telling the student story and in fostering student development and learning.
