Dear Colleagues,

Are you interested in teaching an Explore course that considers the question, “How do people understand and bridge cultural differences?” Adding a signature question to your Explore course infuses the signature questions throughout the whole general education program. It also helps students connect the dots between courses with the same signature question.

Join us for a two-day introductory workshop focused on incorporating the intercultural knowledge and competence signature question into Explore courses.  Participants will have the chance to share ideas with each other as well as with instructors who have tremendous experience teaching intercultural knowledge and competence. Participants will also find out how to designate their course as either global citizenship (GC) or ethnic studies (ES).  These are required for this signature question and are also graduation requirements.

The two-session workshop will take place in Pollock House on Tuesday, October 31 and on Tuesday, November 7 from noon to 2:00. Participants will be given a $300 stipend upon revision of an Explore syllabus.

Remember that Explore courses can be any 100 or 200 level course that counts for general education at UW Oshkosh.  Participants are encouraged to bring a copy of their course syllabus that they plan to revise.

Please let us know if you have questions.

* Feel free to come a little early and bring your own lunch. The Pollock House kitchen has a microwave, water and dishes for your use. (We do ask that you wash your own dishes, though.)
