The Annual Faculty Retreat was held on January 18, 2018. The topic was Re-Visioning General Education.
The day started with a World Cafe exercise asking questions such as What is GE? What is upper division GE? What do we want our students to learn from GE?
The attendees then heard from a panel of students about their experiences with GE courses. Karen Moranski provided information about different models of GE. Attendees then discussed the pros and cons of the models.
After lunch, workshops discussed a variety of topics related to GE. Beer, wine with chips and salsa ended the day.
The call for participants to serve on the temporary GE Revision subcommittee has gone out via email. This committee has specific charges and deadlines.
