The College Student’s Brain
March 12 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
The College Student’s Brain… and What it Means for Faculty & Staff
Have you ever wondered why students don’t remember to turn things in? Why they don’t read the syllabus? Why they send emails that resemble texts? Are you interested in learning about changes mental health professionals are seeing in today’s college students? Or how you can help that socially awkward student handle collaborative learning? Or how the decisions you make that “typical” students might appreciate, like pushing a test date back, affect not so “typical” students? Join us to learn more about brain development in traditionally-aged college students, how it may impact your teaching and advising, and how you can help your students be more successful.
Topics to be covered:
Neurotypical brain development in college students
How stress can impact brain functioning
Challenges young adults have with coping skills
Considerations for your teaching and advising
