Discussion

No additions or corrections

 

 

 

Amy reminds use to the MEDCOM audiovisual teaching resources.  

 Twenty students have not registered for the TEAS yet.

Laurie called ATI to confirm that remediation for the test is through the TEAS manual.

 

 

Interview set for April 16, 17

Amy wants to create a spreadsheet so we can see at a glance if requirements are met.

 

 

 

Success labs are being conducted for struggling students by Wendy and Michelle. Faculty are reading exams to one student who is struggling NCLEX style test questions.  Charlie White Buffalo came to teach us ways to include Wolakolkiciyapi in classes:  mutual respect, mutual esteem, generosity, friendship.

 

 

Sharon and Laurie have written formal letters of resignation and will open another chapter in their lives. There remains a glimmer of hope they can serve as adjunct faculty if the fit is right.

 

 

 

Students have no place to study.  A solution may be to give them access to the dorm for study.

 

 

 

Amy reminds us of this deadline

 

 

 

Laurie reports her instructional affairs committee is working on a code of ethics for faculty.  Wendy reports student services is working on a sexual assault policy.
