CURRICULUM CHANGE IN TRYING TIMESJanuary 7, 2021 - 2 - 3:30PM Eastern TimeFor Administrators and Faculty
The trying teaching and budgetary times brought in by the pandemic have underlined even more the need to have a curriculum that is flexible, engaging for students, and interdisciplinary, no matter what the mode of delivery. Institutions are still pressed by accrediting agencies and constituents to ensure that they are delivering their education missions. In this interactive workshop, veteran administrators and faculty who have been involved with the Reacting to the Past Endeavor Grant project will provide insights from that effort. They will share the process to initiate and sustain a curriculum discussion that they developed with the teams from 20 institutions that participated in the Reacting Endeavor workshops, discuss lessons learned, and respond to questions and concerns participants have about issues on their own campuses.
PANEL:Dr. John M. Burney (former Reacting Consortium Chair and CAO at Loras College and Doane University) will chair the session, joined by Dr. Gretchen Galbraith (SUNY-Potsdam), Dr. Nick Proctor (Simpson College), Dr. William Woods (Schreiner University) as well as veterans from Reacting Endeavor Schools. We will conclude by exploring ways in which the Reacting Consortium can help you advance curriculum discussions at your institutions.
