Description

Please join us on Friday, October 15 for Teachers Talking. Topic: Proposing, planning and teaching challenge seminars: The process, challenges and rewards! Challenge seminars provide “students an opportunity to collaboratively examine and propose responses to enduring and contemporary questions or challenges from an interdisciplinary perspective.” Join faculty in discussing the process, challenges and rewards they experienced in proposing, planning and/or teaching pilots of these seminars.
