Summer 2018 Workshop


May 16, 17, 18 (2018)

Times: 9:00am to 3:00pm

Requirements of Workshop Participants

  • Attendance at all workshop sessions
  • Submission of a syllabus incorporating the Evidence-Focused criteria
  • Commitment to teach your evidence-focused seminar in 2018-2019    
  • Allowing your seminar course to participate in QEP Assessment

Overview of Evidence-Focused Course Criteria

We realize that many of you already teach courses that focus on evidence. For these QEP Workshops, we are looking for faculty willing to revise their current courses or create new courses to fit the specific Evidence-Focused Criteria that our QEP Classroom Component Implementation Committee has developed. The criteria involve the focus and structure of the course (not specific content). A wide variety of courses have already been taught under these criteria, from Physics to Theater. Based on the experiences of faculty who have already participated, we believe the criteria are flexible enough to accommodate any substantive content.
