Second workshop on new curriculum set

The second half of a two-workshop series on the Heritage College's new Pathways to Health and Wellness curriculum, on the topic, "Active Learning," is scheduled for Thursday, June 22, 10 a.m. - noon, in Grosvenor 113 (Athens), SPS-107 (Cleveland) and MEB2-153 (Dublin).

All faculty and staff are encouraged to attend. To prepare for the workshop, participants should:
  • Complete the "Objectives vs Outcomes" self-study module in the PHWC Educator Resources Blackboard course under Prepare to Teach in the New Curriculum/Self-Study Modules/Objectives vs. Outcomes, and

On Tuesday, June 6, the Heritage College Engagement and Enhancement Committee held its first workshop on the new curriculum, set to launch in 2018. The workshop, "Foundations of the Pathways to Health and Wellness Curriculum Part 1: How do You Learn," featured a rich discussion among participants from all three campuses. 

For those who could not attend, a PowerPoint and video from the session have been posted on the PHWC Educator Resources Blackboard site, under Prepare to Teach in the New Curriculum/Attend a Workshop/Workshop Supplementary Resources and Recordings.
