AAC&U Summer Institute in Portland


Institute on Integrative Learning and the Departments
Faculty Leadership for the 21st Century

July 10-14, 2013
Portland State University
Portland, Oregon

through March 15, 2013
AAC&U's Institute on Integrative Learning and the Departments is intended for colleges and universities interested in building faculty and departmental leadership for advancement of Essential Learning Outcomes—knowledge of multiple disciplines, inquiry and critical thinking, personal and social responsibility, civic learning, global knowledge and skills, and particularly, integrative and applied learning. Today, college graduates must be able to integrate and apply disciplinary and cross-disciplinary learning in new contexts as they seek better and more responsible solutions to problems encountered in work and in society. The Institute is designed to help colleges ensure that their graduates have these capacities.
Teams applying to the Institute each propose an educational change project specific to their individual institutions, and commit to develop and support faculty leadership for student learning. Teams will leave the Institute having developed action plans for achieving their specific goals. Expert faculty and other teams will provide initial feedback on the plans at the Institute.
