Workshop

Honors 102: Best Practices in Teaching & Learning within Honors

Description

This workshop targets the best practices of teaching and learning within an academically rigorous context in higher education. The workshop content focuses especially on the four pillars of Honors at Reynolds:  the development of students’ critical thinking skills, an introduction to interdisciplinary learning, the fostering of disciplinary undergraduate research, and the development of student engagement both within the classroom and with the broader communities beyond the classroom. Faculty participants will engage in the development of interdisciplinary approaches for their specific Honors courses. Participants will be asked to complete an activity for review following the end of the workshop. The workshop will be taught first as a 3-hour face to face session; it will be developed further as an online option to be delivered through Blackboard.

Target Audience: All Reynolds faculty (full-time and part-time) who are interested in teaching in Honors

Professional development credits provided.
