Expectations play a huge role in how we learn and teach, but we and our students rarely take the time to unpack them. The expectations students have on the first day of class can have a far greater impact on their success as learners than anything their instructors do over the course of the semester. Similarly, our expectations of ourselves as faculty members and what we think teaching is supposed to look like can significantly hinder learning in our classrooms. In this session, we’ll talk about how to help students and ourselves unpack and clarify our expectations in order to create the most effective learning and teaching experience possible. We’ll also take some time to talk about how to manage our own expectations and those of our departments as to our other goals and responsibilities as a faculty member at a teaching-intensive university.
