Dialogue Across Disciplines
Faculty and student services will work to create an interdisciplinary dialogue around a centralized theme on a complex issue facing our contemporary society.
- Students will participate in at least one student service activity offered through student services or Our House.
- Students will apply critical thinking to a complex social issue.
- Students will explore GE curriculum through a centralized theme.
Dialogues across disciplines is a great way to approach the GE curriculum in a way to build college skills, meet new people, and learn more about the world around you. Whether or not you have a decided on a major, taking courses that participate in D.A.D is great way to make the classes you’re taking more meaningful.
For Faculty & Staff:
Dialogue across disciplines is an outgrowth of the interdisciplinary nature on the Petaluma campus. The idea is to intentionally build on the AACU best practices in a way that works with our campus’ strengths.
There are a variety of ways for faculty and staff to participate.
While faculty may fully contextualize their courses around the theme, there are other options for participating, which may include:
- Collaborating with other faculty on assignments
- Bringing classes to see on campus speakers
- Assigning extra credit regarding the theme
- Participating in the Student Research Conference
- Incorporating service learning or work experience into curriculum
- Attending events sponsored by Student Services or Our House (attendance verification
Coordinating meetings happen from 11am to 12pm on the 3rd Friday of the month via zoom: Sep. 21, Oct. 19; Nov. 16, Dec. 21.
Flex credit available.
