Choose two MOCK CLASSES to attend:

Great Minds Think Alike. Or Do They? (Swain Hall)
Dr. Kathy Hintz, Dr. Deborah Olson

Explore the connections between classroom practices and the processes of learning. Why do some students remember pictures and others remember words? Is it useful to label students? Why are some students motivated and others not so much? Does development affect learning? How can educators help students be successful? Explore the complicated decisions that adults and kids in schools make every day.

To Play or Not to Play? The Psychology of Injury (Wellness Center - Rock Wall)
Dr. Zeni Shabani, Beth Odahlen

Broken bones, concussions, sprains, and pulled muscles - commonplace in the sporting realm! Who determines when an athlete can get back on the court or field: coaches, players, or professional athletic trainers? In the wild world of sports, when does "mind over matter" really apply? Explore the anatomy, physiology, and psychology of sport and injury, as well as the ethics of playing when injured.

Balancing Instinct (Wellness Center - Court)
Karina Stander, Dr. Terry Eckmann

For many the habits and professional skills developed in college will set the tone for life after college. Therein lies the quandary of figuring out how to juggle, communicate and set positive life practices. Are you looking to start your college experience off on a positive note? Then, join us as we practice learning to ask the right questions, develop healthy habits and communicate outside our boundaries.

Style, Substance, and Impact: The Makings of a Great Speech…and Leader (Swain Hall)
Jessica Smestad

A great leader, just like a great speech, must be distinctive; inspire, motivate, and encourage hearts and minds to imagine possibilities and act on new ideas to create positive change. In addition to refining skills for oratorical eloquence, participants in this learning community will explore their potential for leadership, gain a better understanding of the context of practicing it, and plan for how they can make a difference in a rapidly changing world.

12:30 p.m.    Join us for Lunch at the Beaver Creek Cafe
