About the Panel
General Education is the part of a liberal education curriculum that is shared by all students at EKU. It provides broad learning in liberal arts and science disciplines and forms the basis for developing important intellectual, civic, and practical capacities. EKU General Education courses provide a breadth of learning opportunities and skills that can be applied to everyday life while at the university and beyond. The General Education curriculum is designed to provide a foundation that promotes successful behaviors that lead to lifelong learning. General education courses can shape (or reshape) students’ view(s) on learning, teach valuable and transferable employability skills, and introduce students to a variety of subjects. Panelists will reflect on several questions focused on teaching and learning in and across General Education:
What were some of the most memorable moments from your General Education courses at EKU that you still draw from today?
What did faculty do in the classroom to help you learn?
What did faculty do in your courses to help you become excited about course material?
What practices helped you succeed?
What were the most memorable General Education experiences?
What learning experiences do students need in General Education courses?
Faculty will be encouraged to take part in an interactive dialogue to share their own perspectives on student-focused teaching and learning in EKU General Education courses.
Snacks will be available.
