|Essential Studies program holds "Capstone Coffee" sessions|
The Office of Essential Studies is hosting two "Capstone Coffee" events from 9 to 10 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 28, and from 3 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 3, both in the Memorial Room of the Union. The purpose of these workshops is to help faculty and their departments develop courses that will carry the "C" designation. UND undergraduate students will soon need to have ES Capstone courses in place so that they can meet the new requirement, which is designed to provide them with a culminating course that connects their general education work with their work in their major fields. The Capstone Coffees are designed to support the course development process. They will include a review of the "C" criteria, an explanation of the approval process (ES validation), and suggestions for different ways to structure capstone courses. Individual help will also be available for faculty who may have particular questions to discuss. For more information, contact Sandy Brown in the Essential Studies Office at 777-4434 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
