The faculty technology center is a one stop shop for students, faculty, and staff who are looking for ways to engage with technology that is more than just a text messaging or email provider. We have tools to help you manage your time, communicate with your professors or classmates and find out what is going on at your school. We have workshops, webinars, and conferences with experts that will help you get started.
While most of our members have had to resort to calling their professors or asking for help with homework, we have also created a system that allows you to track your academic progress and make it easy to check in with faculty and get help. There are a variety of ways that you can track things, from your grades to your attendance to your class schedule. There are also tools to help you find classes that are most relevant to you, and a few other things that you can find at this center.
My very first college experience was in a graduate school. I was about to begin my first year of graduate school when my professor told me that my grades were the worst he had ever seen at his school. I was flabbergasted, but I had a new job, so I just decided to call my professor and tell him what I thought.
At that moment I was more than a little suspicious of this professor. He seemed to be a little bit crazy and had a history going back to his days with the Army and the Vietnam War (it was the ’70s). He was also talking about a study of a particular group of students and how they were allegedly less intelligent than other groups he had studied.
One thing that I did like about this professor was that he had started his lecture by saying, “Today we are going to talk about…” and then he kept on going. I guess he was talking about something new to him all the time.
We’re going to talk about the study of a particular group of students and how they are supposedly less intelligent than other groups he had studied. The professor’s point was that a lot of the time these groups of students have an issue with their intelligence that isn’t something that is limited to one group. But he didn’t really explain what that was exactly. I can guess his point by how he kept on talking and talking without ever making a point.
So as I mentioned in my review of the study about the group, it seems like the way to get your professor to really start listening is to talk about something you care about and don’t really know how to bring up, like the study of a group of students. The problem with that, however, is that he basically just kept on talking about his personal interests, which doesn’t give him a chance to talk about anything else.
In fact, the study found that faculty members are good talkers and listeners, but not people who bring value to their office. They are more likely to have more open discussions about other topics than they are to discuss their own research.
So far, the study of faculty members has been a pretty quiet one. But it’s just the beginning. I predict that a faculty member who is always complaining about something will eventually be found out to be a terrible person, and that one of their other duties will be to find out what every single complaint about their office really is.
Not surprisingly, these complaints tend to start early on in the tenure process. The early complaints may be minor, but once you do discover the real reasons why a faculty member is making so many bad decisions, the work you do in your office will be a much better use of your time. For example, if you find out that a faculty member has been having an affair, you could immediately implement a policy requiring all faculty members to keep their office doors locked at all times.
