Enhancing faculty success goal of partnership, town hall event

By Richard Zagrzecki

Barnes & Noble @ University of Houston and Academic Affairs are partnering together to offer textbook support and other information aimed at enhancing faculty success.

The collaboration is culminating in a town hall gathering where faculty can discover all the resources the UH bookstore has to offer them and get valuable insight on what students want.

The two-for-one event with lunch and door prizes will take place on Friday, April 17, from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in the Kiva Room of Farish Hall.

The first half of the event will focus on what small group instructional feedback results reveal about students’ academic expectations. It will cover the results of data collected from students over a three-year period at a large southeastern university.

The second half will revolve around faculty services available at the bookstore. The highlights include:

  • Information about flexible textbook search options that are available to assist faculty
  • Current industry trends and a review of how others are using resources
  • Successful trends engaging today’s tech-savvy students
  • Publisher insider information and best practices to help faculty succeed, complete with live demos

The gathering is open to all UH faculty and graduate students, who are asked to RSVP by clicking here. The first 50 attendees will receive door prizes.
