Increase student motivation, learning and retention: The significant impact of Instructor Immediacy

This workshop, led by Kristen Eichhorn and Jennifer Knapp, will define instructor immediacy and discuss how it can be implemented verbally and nonverbally in the instructional setting. Research suggests that instructor immediacy is significantly correlated with student motivation, learning and retention. Join us in lively discussion on the documented benefits of being an "immediate professor" and how to implement these behaviors in your classroom.
