Developing Connections Across the Curriculum

In the spirit of developing connections for ourselves and our students, we invite you to come to Front Range Community College Westminster Campus on Friday, March 13, 2015 to explore the following questions:

  1. How can we equip students with literacy practices and quantitative reasoning skills necessary to enter any course at our respective institutions confidently? 

  2. How can we engage our colleagues across the disciplines to learn how the skills we teach inform the tasks students will tackle in their future coursework?

  3. How can we assist our colleagues to incorporate our knowledge of good scaffolding and process-based learning to help them get the results they want from their students?

  4. How can we solidify connections between instructional practices and student support services?

We feel the best format to tackle these questions is a series of roundtables among teachers broken up by course number (e.g,. CCR 093 teachers will gather in one room).  In these roundtables we want you to share, the efforts you made to connect your students to the larger academic community at your institution.  What models did you use?  What worked and what needed refinement? We will follow the morning discussions in the afternoon with all of us convening to share ideas and propose ways we can strengthen our academic communities.
