It’s been a busy presentation year for us (with a couple more to come in June), and it’s been great to get around the university and beyond to talk about our project. Last Friday we presented at the CUNY CUE Conference at LaGuardia Community College, which was a great time with loads of interesting questions from attendees. We’re happy to share our slides and notes from the presentation (linked here as well as on Results and Findings). Here’s our abstract:
As commuters CUNY undergraduates employ various strategies to find time and space to be students. While students’ constraints may be invisible to faculty and staff, they may affect engagement in students’ academic work. We interviewed CUNY students to learn how they study in various locations. Knowledge of the student experience outside the classroom can inform strategies to increase student success.
