Let’s Think out of the Box!

The success of any good course depends on the design of it. Interdisciplinary General Education (IGE) courses are no different. In this workshop we will set the framework for an IGE course. Interdisciplinary courses promise a wide range of desirable educational outcomes.

This workshop focuses on the process of designing. The process has eight steps: assembling an interdisciplinary team, selecting the topic, identifying disciplines, developing the subtexts, structuring the course, selecting readings, designing assignments, and preparing the syllabus.

Strengthen Multiple Facets of your Students!

The goal of the service leadership initiative for GE programme is to develop in our students the capacity to deliver services with competence, character and care. In this workshop, we will discuss how to incorporate the ideals of service leadership in a GE course, and facilitate student learning effectively inside or outside of the classroom.
