Colleague Spotlight - The Anne Frank Initiative

Starting with the planting of a descendant of Anne Frank's chestnut tree, Kirsten Kumpf Baele (German) has been behind several events on campus that focus on the story of Anne Frank and all the ways in which it can be understood in a more modern context. In order to foster continued interest in Anne Frank and her story, she worked to establish the Anne Frank Initiative (AFI), one of nine affinity groups supported by International Programs on campus. You can read more about the Initiative and the work Kirsten has done in this article on the International Programs website.

The Three Ms for Effective Learning

Working with over 25 partners campus-wide, the Learning at Iowa student success initiative has directly interacted with about 1,130 students, staff, and faculty to implement the Three Ms for Effective Learning: Mindset, Metacognition, and Memory to help students learn how to learn, rather than leaving them to use trial and error to determine how best to study. The program, now in its second year, is working on how to work with faculty and staff to implement the Three Ms. If you are interested in  implementing the Three Ms in your class, see this page on the UI Strategic Plan website and this write-up in Inside Higher Ed.
