Integrating General Education Across the Curriculum: Themed Student Learning Communities

Graphic reading "Integration." The "N" at the end of the word is separated from the rest of the letters.

  • Do you value helping students make connections across courses?
  • Would you like to partner with a colleague to explore intersections between your respective General Education and discipline-specific courses and examine questions, concepts, or skills that might invigorate your classes and inspire you and your students?
  • Would building new connections or renewing old connections with colleagues be a welcomed experience?
  • Are you interested in pursuing a General Education attribute for a course?

If you responded “Yes” to one or more of the questions, then we invite you to engage in the faculty learning community (FLC) on “Integrating General Education Across the Curriculum: Themed Student Learning Communities.” In this FLC, you will collaborate with a colleague to develop a student learning community built on a theme (e.g., question, concept, skill) that connects your two courses (one in General Education and one in a major program). You will also co-develop three signature assignments that will engage students in examining this theme.

This is an exciting opportunity to develop meaningful new learning experiences for your students and to collaborate with colleagues in a supportive environment. Upon successful completion of the FLC, you will be eligible to receive a $350 Professional Development Incentive and a $1,200 grant to present your FLC work at a conference or other venue.

Question? Wish to participate in the FLC? Please email FCTL at [email protected].
