MLC Residency Sessions
Aug 24 @ 8:30 am – Aug 26 @ 5:00 pm

Welcome to the Management and Leading Change Master of Arts program at Antioch University Midwest! Now that you have completed the admissions process, you may be wondering, “What’s next?”

Residency Details
At the beginning of each semester, we convene as a learning community. Your first residential session will be held August 24-26, 2013. Your residential sessions are exciting times spent getting to know other graduate students, faculty, and other AUM staff. It’s also a critical time in which you will begin exploring your program’s curriculum and learning goals, and how these connect to your experience and goals for the future. These activities and more are important foundations for your success in the program and relationships you’ll develop in graduate school.

Normally, students are in session from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. with an hour lunch break and several short breaks throughout the day. Although your daily sessions with faculty usually conclude by 5 p.m., these are full academic days and may be accompanied by nightly review of materials, and/or additional brief reading assignments for the next day. Sometimes evening work is involved, so please keep your schedule flexible.

A continental breakfast, i.e., muffins, bagels, fruit, coffee and tea as well as lunch and snacks will be available daily. Students are responsible for dinners. There are several dining options in downtown Yellow Springs and surrounding areas, including a grocery store. Information related to dining, lodging and events in Yellow Springs is available on the Yellow Springs Chamber of Commerce website.

Please send us an email confirming your attendance. We are also available to answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding the degree program or the residency. We look forward to welcoming you to campus!

School of Ed. Professional Workshop Series: ‘Co-teaching’
Jan 23 @ 4:30 pm – 7:30 pm

The School of Education is offering a series of professional development workshops designed to address specific challenges facing current and future educators. Co-teaching kicks off the series.

Co-teaching has typically been used as a classroom strategy by teachers of exceptional students and teachers of typically developing students. However, co-teaching is now being explored as a collaborative partnership by cooperating teachers and the student teachers they support as a way to increase instructional effectiveness and advance student learning. This 3-hour professional development session explains the benefits of co-teaching; describes how it is useful for both cooperating teachers and student teachers; and provides practical plans for implementing co-teaching models in the classroom.

The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia
Feb 12 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

BigPicture1The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia is an award-winning documentary that provides personal and uplifting accounts of the dyslexic experience from children, experts and iconic leaders, such as Sir Richard Branson and financier Charles Schwab. Directed by James Redford, the film not only clears up the misconceptions about the condition, but also paints a picture of hope for all who struggle with it. Shining a spotlight on the latest scientific and psychological research, the film also highlights the work of Drs. Sally and Bennett Shaywitz, co-founders and co-directors of the Yale Center of Dyslexia and Creativity to illuminate the hidden origins and implications of dyslexia.

Proving that dyslexia is a neurological issue and not a character flaw, The Big Picture beautifully illustrates that while the condition is an obstacle, it also carries some unique advantages, and ultimately can be overcome.  The School of Education will host a panel discussion following the screening.

Did you know? It’s estimated that 50% of NASA employees are Dyslexic. Why? They’re recruited for their specific problem-solving skills.
