2014 Institute on Integrative Learning and the Departments

Faculty Leadership for the 21st Century

July 9-13, 2014
California State University, Fullerton
Fullerton, California

About the Institute
The 2014 Institute on Integrative Learning and the Departments is intended for colleges and universities interested in building faculty and departmental leadership for advancement of Essential Learning Outcomes—breadth and depth of knowledge, inquiry and critical thinking, personal and social responsibility, civic learning, global knowledge and skills, and particularly, integrative and applied learning. Today, college graduates must be able to integrate and apply disciplinary and cross-disciplinary learning in new contexts as they seek better and more responsible solutions to problems encountered in work and in society.

Who Should Attend
The Institute on Integrative Learning and the Departments is designed for teams of faculty and administrators who are working to articulate and meaningfully link departmental, general education, and institutional-level learning goals; encourage innovative interdisciplinary teaching, learning, and assessment practices among their colleagues; and align institutional structures to reward and sustain successes in integrative learning. The Institute aims to help these teams acquire the tools needed to implement change that deepens students’ integrative knowledge and capacities over time, regardless of their background, major, or intended career.
