The College Fear Factor
What do students fear? Is there a difference between under prepared and not able to? Can we match what students want with what faculty expect?
The College Fear Factor, a new book published by Harvard University Press, is based on a four year study of first year students and their professors. The study brought out insights on matching student expectations of college and faculty‘s expectations of colleges. Join Jim Frost for a discussion on the Fear Factor and how the findings applies to teaching here at UTB.
