|Join a Faculty Study Seminar|
There is still room in one of the Faculty Study Seminars (FSS groups) that is being offered during fall 2007. The FSS program provides a means for faculty with common interests to learn more about a teaching-related topic. Each FSS group meets four times during a single semester, at times mutually agreed to by participants, to read and discuss a teaching-related book (books provided by the Office of Instructional Development). The only obligation of participants is to read and come ready to discuss.
FSS openings available for:
Knowledge Factory: Dismantling the Corporate University and Creating True Higher Learning
(2000) by Stanley Aronowitz. Facilitated by Kim Crowley. In this book, Aronowitz, a Distinguished Professor of Sociology at the Graduate Center, City University of New York, argues that what he sees as the corporate view of higher education means that college graduates are not getting a well-rounded education. Aronowitz is writing “not to reform the existing system,” but hopes to appeal to “those who would do something different,” and offer inspiration to those who seek to innovate.
