USC Teaching Excellence Colloquium

Here is another presentation on-line from the colloquium.
"Linking Academic and Civic Engagement: A National Imperative"

Dr. Edward Zlotkowski, Bentley College

Whether one looks at higher education research, the development of instruments like the National Survey of Student Engagement, or the sessions offered at disciplinary conferences, it is clear that over the last decade student engagement, academic and civic, has become a topic of increasing importance. What are the implications of such engagement for curricular design and classroom practice? What resources do faculty need - and most often lack - to help them help their students successfully embrace a more active approach to learning? How can such active learning also pave the way for a more engaged citizenry, a generation ready and able to to address public problems? Questions like these lie at the core of what more and more academic thinkers are calling our new educational model: "the engaged campus."
