Educational Philosophy: I strongly believe in collaborative learning. My philosophy of teaching is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, quizzes, discussions, examinations, peer editing, web sites and videos. I strongly encourage each student to strive to reach his/her highest potential by reading, questioning, reviewing and discussing.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Description of the Core Assessment Instrument This Core Assessment will be a paper that covers 100% of the Core Learning Outcomes. The Core Assessment in this course will be a major critical paper of no fewer than 5 pages, which will include research and appropriate documentation. The project will be completed in the final quarter of the term. The paper must address a significant contemporary issue of a global nature relevant to the course, the student’s major, and the Liberal Education program. The paper should synthesize multiple disciplinary perspectives and propose critical and creative responses. Individual instructors will specify assignment details.
