9:00-11:00 a.m. (Theatre) - Professors as College Students: What Can They Teach Us?
A research project conducted all over the country, using faculty from different disciplines as “stand-ins” for undergraduates; what we can learn from their responses when we eliminate all barriers to learning except one; newness to the field.

1:00-2:00 p.m. (L-102) - Math Anxiety Workshop
This workshop is predominantly for counselors and math faculty, but open to anyone who wants to learn how to help students who experience math anxiety.

3:30-4:30 p.m. (L-102) - Meeting the Needs of Women, Minorities, and Diverse Learners; Matching In-Class Examinations to Students’ Learning Preferences
Without positing that women, minorities and non-traditional learners have either different learning needs or learning styles, this session will provide an opportunity for faculty to explore a wider range of content, style, “setting” and grading practices of in-class examinations.

7:00 - 8:00 PM (Theatre) - Workshop with Sheila Tobias
Participants will view and discuss Tobias' film "Math Anxiety: We Beat it and So Can You" which documents the successes of her Math Anxiety Clinic. This session is open to the public with a special invitation to teachers and would-be teachers.
