David Kravitz, School of Management, will present “Student Perceptions of Fairness in the Classroom” on Friday, Sept. 12, from noon to 1:30 pm in the Johnson Center, Assembly Room A. The session is sponsored by the Center for Teaching Excellence and the Instructional Resource Center. Lunch will be provided for those who RSVP by today.

Kravitz will provide an overview of major theories of fairness that have been validated in research on organizations. Implications of these models for various aspects of the teaching process–syllabus, classroom behavior, evaluation–will be explored with input from participants. Faculty members from all disciplines who want to learn more about classroom instructional strategies are encouraged to attend.

On Wednesday, Sept. 24, Jim Henry, English, will discuss how e-portfolios displayed on the World Wide Web can help students reflect on their evolving expertise in their majors. The event is held from 3 to 4:30 p.m. in Innovation Hall, Room 334.
