POTEAU–Dr. James Hammons provided a workshop for members of the Carl Albert State College faculty as they returned to campus for the fall semester.
“Dr. James Hammons is a well-known professor, consultant, and speaker on higher education, particularly on issues concerning two-year colleges,” said CASC Vice President for Academics Marc Willis. “He has traveled to 41 states and provinces while making over 500 trips to colleges and speaking at more than 100 conferences. He has published over 120 refereed journal articles, book chapters, books, and research reports.
“Dr. Hammons has also contributed to the creation of 103 doctorates, including four dissertations which received national recognition. His mission is to improve the quality of life for those who attend or work in colleges and universities.”
Willis added, “The CASC faculty was fortunate to have Dr. Hammons on campus to discuss one of his favorite topics, faculty actions that motivate and demotivate student performance.”
The full-time faculty participated in a two-hour workshop focused on the small actions that faculty can make which have a significant impact on student motivation and success.
“During his visit Dr. Hammons was able to tour the campus, and was very impressed with both the people and the facilities,” Willis said. “The faculty of CASC, along with the rest of the Office of Academic Affairs, are greatly appreciative of the time and knowledge Dr. Hammons was able to provide, and hopeful that he will be back again to provide meaningful, relevant professional development opportunities.”
