Please select the group(s) you are interested in participating in:
Holistic Education: This group will explore educational philosophies that develop the entire individual through attention to moral, spiritual, emotional, physical, and intellectual needs. We will examine approaches that appreciate life-long learning, value creation, and humanistic educational principles.
Cross-Cultural Exchange: Launched in Fall 2010, this forum explores cross-cultural exchanges with our campus members from diverse backgrounds. We strive to promote dialogue around the unique requirements (i.e., needs, interests, and perspectives) posed by students, faculty, and staff of diverse cultural, religious, and sexual orientations. Ideas from the first year include establishing community outreach efforts, mentorships, and fostering cross-cultural contact. Most importantly, we want to expand the existing resources to retain students and faculty from diverse backgrounds, who often face unique challenges as a part of our national community.
Digital Humanities Renga: This Renga will provide interested faculty and staff with the opportunity to explore aspects of the Digital Humanities. What is meant by the term digital humanities? What do these developments mean for SUNY Fredonia faculty and students? What are the larger implications for the humanities as whole, both inside and outside the academy? Can this “Digital Moment” be seen as an opportunity as we contemplate revising our General Education Program, integrating our new baccalaureate goals across the curriculum, and implementing our new strategic plan. Can we shape and control these rapid and transformative changes to ensure we continue meet our goals as an institution of higher education in the 21st century rather than being swept up (or away) in the flood of technological innovation?
Exploring Approaches to Information Literacy: This is an opportunity for faculty and staff to come together to discuss the future direction of Information Literacy instruction on SUNY Fredonia’s campus through the exploration and evaluation of different program models, activities and pedagogical approaches for infusing information literacy concepts across the curriculum. Faculty and staff will have an opportunity to discuss innovative approaches to research assignment design with colleagues across the disciplines.
