Archives For September 2019

In conjunction with the President’s Office, the First Year Experience is calling for new courses related to the theme of HISTORY. Made. Here.

The storied history of the College can be interpreted from many angles and disciplines. FYE encourages proposals that are innovative, creative, theme-based, or place-based and that enable students to create something lasting. If possible FYE invites faculty to also make the new course community-based that involves some type of outreach. In short, the theme of “history made here” can be interpreted broadly and FYE welcomes proposals from all disciplines and departments (not just History or the Humanities). All courses should include a final project where students will showcase some aspect of the College’s diverse history. These projects should be made public to celebrate the anniversary. Options could include but are not limited to: a performance, poster session, online videos, or websites.

Electronic copies of proposals must be submitted by faculty to Sarah Owens (owenss@cofc.edu) by Wednesday, October 30, 2019. Copies of the first page of the proposal with required signatures can be sent by campus mail or scanned and sent by email to Sarah Owens in Lightsey B64 by the same date. Five $1,000 stipends will be awarded for new FYE courses related to the theme of HISTORY. Made. Here. Stipends will be awarded only for new Seminar or Learning Community courses.  Applicants need to be Roster faculty. Forms were emailed to all faculty and are online at: http://fye.cofc.edu/fye-proposals/index.php.
