Ellen Bremen is coming to Clark on Tuesday, January 29, from 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in Gaiser Student Center to help you communicate better with your instructors for your own College Success!

Two people have control over your success in any college class: you and your college professor.’
In classrooms around the country, as professors teach quantum physics, Russian literature, and Western civilization, they rarely teach students the most important lesson of all:

The way you behave and communicate with me can affect your success in this course and in college.’

As a 10+ year faculty member in Communication Studies, Ellen Bremen, also known as —The Chatty Professor—, is repeatedly surprised that students don…t have the tools they need to interact constructively with their instructors, whether about simple class-related mishaps or more complicated academic situations.

In this talk/workshop Ellen Bremen starts out with a list of common blunders, then offers students a ‘do-over’: improved phrases and statements they can immediately use to handle late work, absences, extra credit and poor grades. Students will receive insider tips about how professors teach, grade, and react to student communication and behavior. Students will learn about their rights and options, and how to exercise them respectfully and effectively.

Ultimately, students will receive vital communication tools. The outcome? Better student-professor relationships, improved grades, and confident and competent communication skills for college and beyond. Then, students can transition this sought-after skill to their professional and personal lives. – Samara Lectures
