A Personalized Education Workshop for Faculty, Advisors, and Student Affairs Staff
Low-cost, seemingly small interventions can have a big impact on student retention and success. This workshop will focus on key programs that have demonstrated positive results with students by addressing specific psychological barriers that obstruct their progress.
Presenter Omid Fotuhi is a research associate in the University of Pittsburgh Learning Research and Development Center. Over the past six years, he has led 45 professional development workshops at colleges and universities across the United States to help faculty, administrators, advisors, and students better understand the psychology of underperformance and identify the root causes of existing achievement gaps among at-risk groups of students. Fotuhi’s current research is focused on goal setting as an effective strategy to overcome obstacles and improve performance.
