Interdisciplinary Faculty Seminar 2019

Applications are due on Tuesday, May 22, 2018.

The spring 2019 Interdisciplinary Faculty Seminar has a pedagogical theme that can be considered from a range of perspectives and teaching approaches. As with previous IFS experiences, faculty will meet regularly throughout the semester to consider their understandings of and connections to the theme. During the academic year that follows the seminar (2019-2020), participants will be invited to apply for pedagogical mini-grants that are designed to extend teaching practices and enrich student learning and engagement.
