Community of Inquiry Faculty Workshop

According to a recent survey conducted by the CST, nearly 80 percent of you agree it is somewhat important, highly important, or urgent to learn "how to incorporate information fluency concepts in my classroom teaching." Successful liberal arts students need to develop the ability to use information resources effectively in addressing scholarly questions, and to use writing to clarify thinking and describe, persuade, document and analyze. Please join us in a participatory peer workshop that focuses on assignment design to enhance information fluency and writing skills. The Community of Inquiry: Assignment Design for Research and Writing is open to all faculty, with a special emphasis for faculty who are teaching in the first-year course program. This is an opportunity to develop a specific assignment for a course.

Sponsored by the CST, Library and MAX Center, the workshop will be held:

9 a.m.-3 p.m., Monday, May 14
9 a.m.-noon, Tuesday, May 15
9 a.m.-noon, Thursday, Mary 17

Workshop participants will receive a $200 stipend.

Advance registration for the workshop is required. Registration Deadline is May 8
