Description

Smith College's Wurtele Center for Work & Life is a new, integrative model for co-curricular programming, offering workshops and resources designed to give students the tools and habits-of-mind that they need to thrive at college and beyond. Over the course of the session, attendees will learn about how the WCWL develops new programs and resources for students, and will think about the “nonacademic” skills that they would like their students to learn – skills like bouncing back from an unwelcome grade, speaking up in class, and emailing and meeting with professors. Attendees will consider potential stakeholders who might collaborate on developing programs or materials.
