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!

Duo Mobile and New Phones

submitted by

The holiday season is a time for gifts and often those gifts are new phones. When moving to a new phone, ensuring your Duo Mobile is working will be important as Duo Mobile is required to access online services like email and Moodle. You could be unable to access these online services until your Duo Mobile is re-setup.

Here’s some tips for a smooth phone transition:

1) Use the iCloud backup and restore feature of your iPhone when moving your phone apps and data to a new iPhone. Tutorial:
This will likely ensure Duo Mobile will still be registered in your new phone. This assumes your phone number is staying the same. Android phones may not transfer automatically.

2) If you run into trouble and still have your old phone, you can enroll your new phone at Keep in mind you will need to use your old phone to approve your login in order to enroll the new phone. Keep your old phone on WiFi to receive the Duo prompt.

3) Set up Duo Restore in the Duo Mobile app by following the directions at

You can always contact your LFC (faculty and staff) or the Tech Desk (students) for help. With limited hours over the holiday break, responses may be delayed.

MLK Convocation: We Rise MLK and Our Voices Coming Alive

submitted by

On behalf of Pan-Afrikan Student Services and Augsburg University, we are excited to bring you this year’s Martin Luther King, JR., Convocation. This year’s theme is “We Rise, MLK and Our Voices Coming Alive”, in community, this was inspired in our efforts to rebuild community after a pandemic and absence of visibility and support systems for Pan-Afrikan students, mostly seen through not having a full office at Multicultural Life for an entire academic year. This event will center our Pan-Afrikan community through the art of dance, song, poetry, and more. All are welcome!

Our keynote speaker of this year is Dr. Terrance Kwame-Ross, Associate Professor in the Education Department at Augsburg University. Through his scholarship, service, and teaching practice, Dr. Kwame-Ross focuses on how individuals and human groups grow, develop, and change over time. He brings an interrogative, interdisciplinary, integrative, and intersectional pedagogical approach to teaching and learning across school, society, family, and church for whole-beingness. To learn more about Dr. Terrance Kwame-Ross, please visit our website here:

For any questions, please email Kezia Burrows, program manager of Pan-Afrikan Student Services at
