Attending to Attendance: Creating a Course/Policy That Works

submitted by

CTL invites you to join Jennifer Bankers-Fulbright (Biology & CTL Director) and Audrey Lensmire (Education) for a 90-minute Zoom workshop Wednesday, January 4, 2023 from 10 – 11:30 am. This workshop, inspired by faculty discussion at the December faculty meeting, has been specifically created for Augsburg teaching faculty who are experiencing frustration related to student attendance in their courses and would like to do something about it that meets both instructor and student needs. This workshop will ask you to think about why you have your current attendance policies, what isn’t working and what do you want to happen, followed by time to literally “workshop” your Spring course policies with others who have similar issues (as well as some solutions!). Faculty who have successful attendance policies in their course are also encouraged to attend to act as peer mentors!

If you have any questions, would like to request accessibility accommodations, or would like to “officially register” as a peer mentor, please contact Jennifer L. Bankers-Fulbright, Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at or

Looking forward to a productive start to Spring 2023!
