Calls for Proposals
We invite you to help design and implement Inquiry ARC into new or existing courses and learning experiences for the next academic year. Future calls will be pending for opportunities in coming academic years. Participating educators will be expected to revise their courses or learning experiences to accommodate Inquiry ARC pedagogies, and to help students think critically. Educators will also be expected to attend professional development workshops before involving students in the Inquiry ARC learning experience and to participate in assessment at course's end.
Your acceptance into the program signals your willingness to...
- include a learning objective on critical thinking in your class;
- include one or more inquire-apply-reflect-communicate experience(s) in your class;
- report on two in-course assessments, one on your use of critical thinking pedagogy
and one on student demonstrations of critical thinking, and
- attend each of the professional development sessions (see specific calls for dates)
Co-Curricular Inquiry ARC Experiences
The deadline for current experience proposals is Sept. 27, 2013.
Examples of co-curricular Student Learning Experiences might include residence halls, athletics, centers affiliated with the university, and non-academic departments and programs, anywhere where students might benefit from developing their critical thinking outside for-credit classes. Staff members must have approval from their supervisors to participate if they are teaching during regular work hours. Spring 2014 professional development activities include November reading circle 3:30-4:30 (Nov. 1, 8, 15, 22), workshops Dec. 12, 12:00-5:00PM (lunch included), Dec. 13, 8:00-4:00PM (breakfast and lunch included). The group will decide "check-in" dates for shorter sessions as well as spring semester meeting times.
Submit a proposal for a co-curricular Inquiry-ARC learning experience.
