|Graduate School offers new Chautauqua Series|
The Graduate School is pleased to announce a new series of meetings offering graduate students and faculty opportunities to engage in semi-formal discussions on academically related matters. A core working group of graduate faculty and students has worked to define a series which is hoped to become an important part of UND academic culture.
The series of workshops, "The Graduate School Chautauqua Series," will occur at three-week intervals throughout the fall and spring. The workshops will begin with a light lunch at 11:30 a.m., followed by the discussion at noon.
The fall series will focus on instruction. Collectively, we will examine topics of who we are as students and instructors, how we assess learning, and the professional boundaries that sometimes limit our ability to truly function as a community of scholars.
The spring series will examine the academic tradition of dissemination of creative scholarship.
Participation by graduate students and faculty is widely encouraged. We hope to develop the Graduate School Chautauqua Series as a forum that is embraced by the UND community of scholars, as a place where we continue to question and to learn.
