Thank you for choosing Antioch University Midwest. We are extremely excited that you have decided to join our community of learners. Classes for the Spring 2014 semester begin January 7th, 2013 with the first Saturday class on January 11th.
On Thursday, December 12th from 4-8:30 pm there will be a mandatory orientation. It is very important that you attend if possible, as this session will inform students of campus policies and procedures; we will also cover the use of our email and student management system. In order to participate, please return your enrollment form (download here).
Once we receive your enrollment form, I will contact you to help you get registered for classes.
If you have any questions about orientation, the enrollment form, or if you have time conflict, please contact at (937) 769-1658.
Your residential session is an exciting time 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 foundation courses, specifics related to your area of study, and the process for putting all the pieces of your curriculum together.
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.
Occasionally classes meet over lunch or go later in the evening, 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.
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.
