DateMarch 26, 2013

LocationFaculty Ctr-Grn Rm
DescriptionFacilitators - Dr. Gia Chevis (Accounting and Business Law) and Dr. Byron Newberry (Mechanical Engineering)

Audience - Faculty

In this FIG, we’ll explore ways to make our courses transformative experiences for students, where “covering content” is done in service of larger goals rather than

as an end in itself.
Using L. Dee Fink’s book Creating Significant Learning Experiences as a guide, we’ll think deeply about what it is we truly want our

students to take away from their encounters with our disciplines. We’ll brainstorm ways big and small to incorporate meaningful, authentic activities into our

courses…and renew our own senses of purpose while we’re at it.
We’ll meet from 12:15 – 1:45 in the Faculty Center, leading with lunch and starting the

discussion around 12:30. We welcome those who would need to depart early for a 1:30 class.

Meeting dates: 2/5, 2/27, 3/27, and 4/24.

The Academy for Teaching and Learning has graciously agreed to provide a copy of the book for each participant. Please contact Theresa Williams (x4064)or email at
for your copy.
