Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence offers program on reading compliance

The Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence will present Influence of Behavioral Biases on Undergraduate Students’ Reading Compliance Decisions from noon to 1 p.m. Monday, Feb.17, originating from Room 315 Rider Building at University Park with Polycom available at Penn State's Berks and York campuses.

Reading compliance is a critical element of student learning. In 2010, Amit Sharma, associate professor of hospitality management, was awarded a Schreyer Institute Teaching Project grant to explore this issue. Join Sharma as he shares the results of his most recent research. An online survey was administered to Penn State students to understand how their decision to allocate time and incentives/disincentives offered by instructors impacts their reading compliance. During this lunchtime event, Sharma will lead participants in a discussion of key results of the study and consider how instructors can enhance students' ability to read and engage in their learning experience at Penn State.

This event will be offered in a face-to-face format in 315 Rider Building; Polycom will be available at the following locations:

Berks – 145 Thun Library
University Park - Originating location: 315 Rider Building
York – 103 Romano Building
