WAC/WID: Online Program: Active Learning, Critical Thinking, and Writing

The WAC/WID Online Program invites faculty or staff to engage in an online learning environment as a cohort during the spring semester. Participants read and discuss John Bean's text, Engaging Ideas, via a Falcon Online course. Bean's text is used as the pedagogical framework for the WAC/WID program, and faculty participants are encouraged to also participate in the Summer Teaching & Learning Retreat in order to workshop applying Bean's approach to their own classes and assignments. If you sign up for this program, you will be provided a hard copy of the text, and you will be enrolled in a Falcon Online Course Shell. The online program begins in the Spring of 2022. It's available to DSC full-time faculty, adjunct faculty, and staff. If you'd like to participate, please contact Jessica Lipsey.
