Topic Efficiency, Productivity, and Permission to Waste

Tuesdays & Thursdays 4-5:15, Sept. 1 – Oct. 1

Barbara Adams & Paula Turkon

CRN 23335

How much does efficiency matter in an endeavor – whether sport or agribusiness, microbiology or filmmaking? Does efficiency always yield productivity? and is productivity necessarily the goal? Does nature itself privilege these concepts? Is it ever acceptable to waste time, money, and resources? Through classtime interviews with professionals and experts from a wide range of fields, this course asks students to explore these concepts.

The College has recently learned that the convenient fingerprinting machine that is normally brought to campus will be discontinued after this summer, and there will be a new process (likely one that requires travel, perhaps extensive travel, to a different location) for fingerprinting beginning Fall 2015. Given this knowledge, we are encouraging all our undergraduate teaching option majors to complete the fingerprinting process this semester, before these changes take place

This semester's on-campus fingerprinting opportunity will be Tuesday, April 21st. You may sign up for an appointment for your fingerprinting by visiting the Education Department office (194 Phillips Hall) and signing up for a time on the sheets posted to the glass wall outside our conference room. Just ask any one of us, and we'll help you find the right place to sign up!
