This workshop will equip you with the knowledge and resources necessary to effectively respond to the needs of undocumented students at UMD.

I-Series: Helping Students Grapple With the “Big Questions” Through General Education
Presenters: Ann Smith, Lisa Kiely, and I-Series Faculty

Thursday, October 25, 2018
Marie Mount Hall 1310A

CANCELLED - Will be rescheduled in the Spring 2019 Semester.
General Education requires all students to take two Distributive Studies courses that are also I-Series. But what does it mean for students to take classes that challenge them to wrestle with big questions, and examine the ways that different disciplines address them? How can advisors help them select these courses? At this workshop, meet faculty members who teach I-Series classes and share with them the challenges you face in helping students understand the opportunities they have with General Education.
