ICC Faculty Collaboration Sessions

Contributed by Wade Pickren on 02/27/2014 

A series of informal sessions for faculty to collaboratively discuss their approaches to designing ICC courses and assignments for the ICC will be held in February. Faculty who have taught courses or developed successful course proposals will be present to share what they are doing in their courses (e.g., activities, assignments) and there will be ample time for all present to talk about possibilities for developing or modifying courses to meet ICC student learning outcomes. Sessions are perfect for faculty who are already teaching in the ICC, those who have ideas but aren’t quite sure how to move forward, or those who have some interest in teaching in the ICC but don’t know where to begin. This series is co-sponsored by the Center for Faculty Excellence and the Integrative Core Curriculum.
