Developing Intentional Learners: Scaffolding General Education Learning Outcomes
AACU 2017 General Education and Assessment Conference
Association of American Colleges and Universities
For more than five years, Utah State University has been engaged in the integration of its orientation, first year experience, general education, and major programs to create intentional learners who understand the academic role and public value of general education. This session will explore how to undertake a comprehensive reform of these programs in light of the LEAP initiative. Participa nts will leave the session armed with an understanding of the questions to ask, the processes to implement, and the possible impediments to implementing faculty-driven, student-focused general education curriculum reform on their campus. They will be shown how Utah State University has integrated the LEAP initiative in student-centered programs from admission to graduation.
