Increasingly, studies have shown that annual evaluations have become a tool for students to either reward or punish faculty. Thus the role of evaluations in improving instructor teaching has been drastically reduced. Ken Bain's book on "what the best college professors do" has been a seminal book used to improve faculty teaching. As professors find ways of improving their teaching strategies, it may be worthwhile to pause and ask ourselves "what do the best college students want or need from their professors?". The purpose of this poster session involving some of the best students we have had is to engage in a discussion on what students need from professors and how professors can leverage direct advice from good students to improve their teaching strategies and to reach all students in their classrooms. The discussions provide different strategies to reach students across disciplines.
