Team Teaching: Planning for Meaningful Integration in the Classroom and Online
Would you like to develop meaningful integrative learning experiences for the learning communities, first-year experiences, or guided pathways programs on your campus?
Our curriculum planning retreat is designed to support faculty building integrative learning experiences for students. Sessions provide value for both those newer to integrative learning and those with many years of experience in linked or paired courses, clustered courses, first-year experience programs, living-learning communities, or coordinated studies programs.
This year, we’re reimagining the event in a remote-collective space over three consecutive Thursdays, providing time in-between for faculty to “retreat” for further reading, curriculum development, or engagement in program planning. The sessions will open with an all-star panel of learning community leaders who will address connections between integration and student success. This initial focus on student success will help frame subsequent sessions focused on designing integrative assignments and effective team-teaching (in face-to-face and remote learning environments). For those newer to integrative learning, the first session will also provide a brief history of integrative learning in Washington State.
Sponsored by the Washington Learning Community Consortium (WLCC) and the Washington Center at The Evergreen State College.
