|General Education Transition Summit is Oct. 19|
All are invited to come for lunch from noon to 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19, in 16-18 Swanson Hall, and an afternoon of activities and discussion focusing on UND’s transition to the new Essential Studies Program. Contact Jana Hollands at 777-3600 for reservation information.
Come enjoy a buffet lunch and conversation about the new Essential Studies Program which will be implemented for incoming freshman in fall 2008.
1 to 2 p.m., disciplinary discussion groups presentation.
Late this summer, groups of faculty from across campus began to draft criteria for the disciplinary distribution, establishing guidelines the Senate General Education Requirements Committee will use to determine where to place courses when they are validated — in math/science/technology, social sciences, arts and humanities or communications. Come join these groups for a review and discussion of their work.
2 to 3 p.m. in 17 Swanson Hall, model projects and transition update. In 2007, OID granted summer professorships to faculty members who choose to focus on new features of the Essential Studies Program in their curriculum development projects. Come learn about these model projects which focus on quantitative reasoning, diversity, thinking and reasoning, advanced communication and the capstone. We will also get an update on the transition work to be accomplished this year.
3 to 4 p.m., Badlands Room, Memorial Union, Q&A on revalidation. Members of the General Education Requirements Committee will offer a Q&A on revalidation for departments due for general education revalidation this year.
