It's All About the Question: Enhancing Student Writing

Tuesday, March 17 from 11:45am-12:30pm in Dillin NW
Presented by David Sumner

When we think about student writing, we often think about mechanics: grammar, punctuation, usage. But the best way to help students write more effectively is to tap their desire to do real inquiry, and the key to real inquiry is a good question. This session will focus on how to help students generate and effectively answer good questions. And we'll also talk a little grammar and usage.

Designing and Teaching Jan Term Travel Courses

Tuesday, April 21 from 11:45am-12:30pm in Dillin NW
Presented by Deborah Canepa, Charles Dunn, and David Sumner

January Term off-campus courses provide rich opportunities for faculty and students alike; however, until you have taught and led one, the challenge of putting a new course together can seem daunting. This session will cover the expectations for off-campus courses, including the timeline, itineraries, syllabi, and safety concerns. In addition, we will discuss the resources that both experienced faculty and the International Programs Office can provide.

Case Studies on Integrating Sustainability into the Curriculum at Linfield

Tuesday, April 30 from 11:45am-12:30pm in the President's Dining Room
Presented by Duncan Reid

At the end of Spring semester 2014, a group of faculty gathered to learn how to integrate sustainability more fully into their courses. Over the past year, a Faculty Sustainability Learning Community has emerged and initiated a process to inventory the course catalog to determine which existing courses are potentially sustainability-related or focused. Join this multi-disciplinary group of your peers to learn about the process of integrating sustainability into their respective courses, and the development of the sustainability catalog inventory. The first 10 attendees will receive $25 in McMinnville Downtown Dollars.
