As a way to prime the pump for the coming Common Core Course Proposal Process—which has now been streamlined into a one-stage, rather than a two-stage, process—we will have an informal gathering in the CC Lounge for those interested in the possibility of developing a proposal. We will be seeking, as always, courses that are organized around topics of significance that you care deeply about, that will be appealing to students across all the faculties, be interdisciplinary and multimodal in content, and make use of active assessments (instead of relying on traditional exams). We are also seeking courses that are highly experiential or use a flipped classroom or other alternative forms of design.
Finally, we are hoping to see ideas that might add to our proposed CC Transdisciplinary Minor in Gender, Sexuality, and Difference, especially in the AoIs of Scientific and Technological Literacy and China. (Our first two Minors/Clusters are in Sustaining Cities, Cultures, and the Earth and The Universe and the Question of Meaning.)
