Learn students' names with these resources

Most would agree that learning students’ names is an important factor in a student success. Daniel F. Chambliss, Sociology professor at Hamilton College, wrote, “The best thing I do to improve students’ work in my courses is … I will learn and use their names. It’s easy, and it works. Using those names in class is uniquely powerful.”  

While remembering names may seem like a simple and basic task, it sometimes takes time and effort. These resources below offer strategies that may help with learning students’ names.  

For more information on these and other course success strategies, please contact CETL. For more information on the upcoming spring 2018 Focus on Focus implementation of course success interventions, please contact any Focus on Focus team member listed on the SharePoint site.

How does solar eclipse affect energy use?

We all know that the solar eclipse can hurt your eyes, but did you know it can also affect energy consumption?

Even though Madison isn't in the direct path of the eclipse, renewable energy instructor Dr. Ken Walz says energy usuage will still be widely affected. 

"At its maximum, the eclipse will block about 85 percent of the light from the sun. This will occur at around 1:15 p.m. and will last nearly 3 hours. So even at this extreme, solar panels in Madison will still be producing some electricity - just a lot less than they would on a clear sky day."

The U.S. Energy Information Administration also provides a very thourough explaination of how the eclipse will affect solar photovoltaic generators.

Smart thermostats are popular because they give homeowners more control over their heating/cooling needs, which helps save money.
