CTE Session: What is Integrative Learning?Center for Teaching Excellence, Thomas Cooper Library, Room 511
Sep 1, 2011 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM
The recent USC Connect initiative has brought campus-wide attention to the term integrative learning. But what exactly is integrative learning? How can it be a part of meaningful coursework? How can it be assessed? What are the benefits for faculty and students who engage in integrative learning experiences? Attendees will learn the answers to these questions, plus gain practical tips for syllabus development, integrative learning activities, and techniques for assessment and grading.
