Innovation in Teaching and Learning

PLACE creates a “learning laboratory” whereby faculty fellows experiment in liberal education and civic engagement, evaluating and sharing results so others can benefit from their experiences. Often faculty members will collaborate to teach across disciplinary lines (e.g. a Political Science course on War, Politics, and Society and an English course on Literature in War -- insert links) or devise new assignments or pedagogies to help promote civic engagement (e.g. Linfield students taking a religious studies course in Fall 2017 are becoming “digital pen pals” with partnering Muslim students from a different institution).

Below are all the courses that will be adopting innovative approaches to teaching and learning and civic engagement and/or plugging in to the PLACE theme “The Digital Citizen.”
