Finch, Mundy Present at Symposium

Finch and Mundy

Dr. Debora C.  Finch and Dr. Meaghan Mundy, Gallup-Certified Strengths Coaches and adjunct faculty in University College, recently presented at the Symposium for Part-time, Adjunct and Contingent Educators (SPACE) in Atlanta. Their presentation, A Strengths-Inspired Story: Utilizing StrengthsQuest in Your Course Foundation, was inspired by the introductory Intellectual Growth and Inquiry class for all new adult degree students they teach at Belmont, in which participants learn practical ways to infuse a strengths lens into their courses and gain an understanding of how their students’ talents and strengths – and their own – impact the classroom culture. By helping students name, claim and aim their strengths, teaching and learning are enhanced. The “strengths story” that evolves becomes a powerful foundation for growth, development and academic success.
