TIPS Workshop:

Teaching in the Discovery Core: How to Prepare an Effective Application

Do you want to submit a course proposal to the Discovery Core (DC) Series in the First Year and Pre-major Program (FYPP)? Are you not sure how to get started, or do you want to refine a course proposal? Join our facilitators, Drs. Jennifer Atkinson (Lecturer IAS), and Avery Shinneman (Lecturer, FYPP) at our first TIPS of the 2016-2017 academic year to learn and share with other learner-educators (faculty, staff, and students)!

Students who take the sequenced DC curriculum become immersed in interdisciplinary, small learning communities; many of these courses are team-taught. DC courses are designed to advance the overall mission to support the successful transition to college of first-year and pre-major students, and to provide the foundation on which they will continue scholarly and professional development. The First Year Learning Goals focus on inclusive practices, critical and creative inquiry, ethics and social responsibility, quantitative and qualitative literacies, and communication.


Tuesday, October 18 2016, 11:00am-12:30pm
Discovery 464
Facilitator: Drs. Jennifer Atkinson, IAS Lecturer, and Avery Shinneman, IAS Lecturer
