Redesigning Majors: Disciplinary Knowledge, Civic Learning, and Public Responsibility
An AAC&U webinar relevant to Pathways work
Tuesday, April 3
11 a.m. – McD 387

RSVP for a box lunch.

This webinar, designed for faculty and departmental chairs and funded by the Endeavor Foundation, will focus on how departments can structure the design, expectations, and experiences for all their majors to expand students’ civic capacities while also deepening students’ learning in the discipline. Led by practitioners who have already implemented such departmental designs, participants can learn how departments adapted their curricula by developing civic-centered learning goals, mapping out levels of learning over time, and creating opportunities for applying disciplinary knowledge to address large public challenges.

Undergraduate Research: In the classroom and beyond
By Dr. Kristy Duran and Dr. Adam Kleinschmit
Friday, April 6
Noon-1 p.m. – MCD 387

This is a #PathwaysProject session. Undergraduate research, which is recognized as a high impact educational practice by the AAC&U, focuses on involving students in authentic scholarship. This professional development session will introduce the different forms of undergraduate research and scholarship. We will also highlight how research and teaching are not mutually exclusive and that an undergraduate research program can thrive at a teaching-intensive institution. This session is appropriate for faculty and staff who are new to implementing undergraduate research or are looking for new approaches to involve students in scholarship both inside and outside of the classroom.

RSVP for lunch.
