Getting a GE Designation On Your Course: A Step-By-Step Guide

The General Education Curriculum Committee oversees all general education and bachelor degree requirements. Faculty developing courses that they hope will be approved to meet these requirements often have questions about the criteria that must be met. This workshop will focus on the content, instructional process and learning outcome criteria for courses that carry the Intellectual Explorations designations. Each will be discussed and successful examples will be provided. Participants will leave the workshop with a clear understanding of each criterion and the kinds of evidence that can support a successful application.

How to Survive Teaching Online

Teaching online can be stressful and time-consuming, especially if you’re doing it for the first time. Not only do you have to learn new technologies, but you must be more organized when presenting instructional content. Even if you’ve taught a subject before, it takes time to create pages, assignments, discussions, and assessments specific to the online environment. And students in online classes seem to have different expectations about how and when to interact with the teacher. Come to this workshop and learn proven strategies for surviving and thriving as an online instructor. You spend a lot of time trying to make things better for your students. How about spending a little time making things better for you?

Integrated Learning with Student Portfolios

Integrated learning – or the ability of a student to connect, synthesize, and transfer their learning across the curriculum and into new situations – should be central to the student experience. This workshop, open to grad students, postdocs, and faculty members, will explore ways to facilitate experiences that promote integrated learning, primarily through the use of learning portfolios (also known as ePortfolios). Through documentation of their learning, students make meaning of their own academic experiences, reflecting on those experiences, and triggering “aha!” moments. We will closely examine what integrated learning, as facilitated by learning portfolios, looks like in practice. We will share classroom experiences, examine best practices, and imagine ways to move forward with our work. We hope to foster partnerships across campus, and hope you will join us for this workshop.
