SC 173 Helping Students Adjust to the New Prof. – YOU!

NOTES FROM THE STUDENT CARING PODCAST FOR PROFESSORS

 

 

How to help our students adjust to a new professor.

Your arrival at a new university might be very difficult for continuing students.
Student: “What do you mean professor Jones is gone?” “Who is this new professor anyways? I’m doomed, doomed I say, doomed.”
Moreover, we are the new professor at the beginning of every semester.

Our students are usually experiencing other new professors at the same time.

How we can help:

  • Acknowledge that they are experiencing a change and that can be difficult them.
  • Communicate up front with your students about your teaching style.
  • Install confidence in your students about the change of professors.
  • Our students learn subjects from us as the unique persons that we are.
  • Don’t judge yourself by how much the students miss the previous professor.
  • Recognize that our students will compare us to the previous professor.

Your purpose as a professor is not to be liked, it’s to connect with
those students who your naturally going to connect with
and also to connect with those students
who really need your help.

NOTES FROM THE STUDENT CARING PODCAST FOR PROFESSORS

Helping Student Athletes | Student Caring

 

HELPING OUR STUDENTS WHO ARE IN SPORTS.

  • This can be a sore topic for some professors. We are here to help.
  • Unrealistic expectations:
    • Sports, in high school, are extremely important to parents. Sports can help with college admissions and scholarships.
    • College is about much more than just sports.
  • From a professors perspective:
    • We want our students to do well in all areas.
    • We don’t want our sports students to focus 100% on their sport at the expense of their education.
    • Your education is going to help you succeed in life.
    • Your educational goals are the most important ones during the college years.
  • Sports Students Strengths
    • Sports students understand teamwork.
    • Sports students have self discipline.
    • Sports students understand personal health.
  • Sports Students Concerns
    • Sports students may need to miss many classes to participate in their sport.
    • Sports students can surround themselves with just fellow sports students.

SC 171 Teaching Students in the Arts

NOTES FROM THE STUDENT CARING PODCAST FOR PROFESSORS

Teaching Students in the Arts

 

HELPING OUR STUDENTS WHO ARE IN THE ARTS.

  • A concern… Sometimes students in the arts are not as concerned about straight academic work.
  • They may not see how their other classes can help them in life.
  • Students in the arts sometimes have complicated schedules.
  • Students will have periods of time, usually just before a performance, when they are 100% not focused on your class.
  • We can help them by being predicable with our course schedules.
  • If our students can let us know when they are performing, it will give us an an insight as to what they are experiencing during a particular week.
  • Arts students have a great deal of stress about graduating.
  • Arts students have transferable skills:
    • They can speak in front of an audience without passing out!
    • They can collaborate.
    • They can meet deadlines.
    • They have people and communication skills.
  • We can help these students by showing them how the subject that we are teaching can help them in the arts.
  • Skills in the arts do not always lead to a career in the arts.

SC 170 Helping Employed Students

NOTES FROM THE STUDENT CARING PODCAST FOR PROFESSORS

SC 170 Helping Employed Students

 

HELPING STUDENTS WHO ARE ALREADY EMPLOYED WHEN THEY ENTER COLLEGE.

  • Daniel knows of a full time student who is working 70 hours per week!
  • Ask your student, who may be having difficulties: “How much do you need to be working?”
  • We find that many students are working more than they need to. Delayed gratification is not easy for any of us.
  • Encourage your student to put their education near the top of their list of priorities.
  • Enlighten your students about income possibilities of a future job.
  • Encourage your students to look for work on campus.
  • Many employers are “college student friendly.”
  • The work schedule needs to be flexible – around the class schedule.
  • When our class schedule is predicable, it helps our students plan around work.
