Presentations & Meetings About ASL & CEL Course Designation

By Appointment

The University has recently begun the process of designating Academic Service-Learning and Community-Engaged Learning Courses in the BANNER system. However, in order for courses to be designated, faculty must fill out an application form. Information submitted through the application form will be reviewed by a committee of faculty members who will provide suggestions and recommendations (if necessary) on how to ensure the course passes the designation process. If departments and/or individual faculty members would like someone to walk them through the application process, please contact Dr. Jessica Arends to set up a time to meet.

Difficult Discussions - Completed

Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2014
Time: 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Location: IASH Conference Room in the Library

This roundtable explored how we as instructors address difficult or controversial topics in the classroom. Possible topics include current events, race, class, poverty, privilege or any other potentially sensitive issue that could arise in the classroom, be it part of the planned curriculum or unplanned. Facilitated by Faculty Engagement Associate Jessica Arends, this roundtable was open to instructors from all disciplines and was especially relevant for those teaching or planning to teach discussion-based or community-engaged courses.
