Faculty who are scheduled to teach in the Marquette Core Curriculum in 2018-19 are invited to participate in a two day faculty development institute (June 19 and 20) that will focus on the development and modification of courses for the revised core. The Institute will be particularly useful for faculty teaching in a MOI or a course in the Discovery Tier, and will provide opportunities to connect with faculty across campus and learn course design strategies that will helps students make connections between disciplinary perspectives. A primary goal of the institute will be the design or redesign of syllabi and assignments for the revised core. A small stipend will be offered to faculty who participate. Space is limited. Interested faculty should email, Dr. Sarah Feldner, director of the Marquette Core Curriculum.
The institute is funded by a National Endowment for the Humanities Connections Planning Grant.

The National Endowment for the Humanities supports research and learning in history, literature, philosophy, and other areas of the humanities by funding selected, peer-reviewed proposals from around the nation.
