Commission on Undergraduate Commission to Host Forums

The Commission on Undergraduate Curriculum invites students, faculty and staff to attend the third open forum titled “Changing Pedagogy, Changing Curriculum.”

After reading a number of books and articles and engaging in hours of discussion, the commission has come to realize that a distinctive curriculum is more likely to occur from modifying and coordinating the way Truman faculty teaches the classes than from designating a unique set of classes for students to take. Truman needs to develop more effective ways to develop and reinforce the full-range of critical thinking, communication and life skills. As the commission drafts new learning outcomes it would like input from the Truman community regarding how pedagogy can be used to encourage the kinds of learning opportunities that would lead students to develop the desired characteristics of Truman graduates that appear in the recently adopted SPAC document.

The forums will take place from 3:30-5 p.m. Sept. 25 in the Student Union Building Activities Room and from 3:30-5 p.m. Sept. 26 in Violette Hall 1010.

The Commission on Undergraduate Curriculum plans to have additional forums as it moves forward with the curriculum review process. These are the first in a number of forums the commission plans to have during the next two years.
