2May 19, 2012 7:51 PMi would like to see a working group set up to consider how information literacy is being taught across the curriculum. Maybe it is also time to review at least a subset of gen ed elements: the so-called five pillars that WASC has been toying with requiring us to establish and demonstrate proficiencies in: written communication, oral communication, quantitative skills, critical thinking, information literacy. I also think there should be a wider conversation than within the gen ed precincts of "quantitative skills": is the current FS requirement really what we think every student who graduates should have a course in?

8May 3, 2012 3:45 PMTake a different approach to allow faculty to fulfill GE core. Current system infringe on faculty independence and right to teach a class e.g. O must have 40% grade in a class designated, etc. Accept the fact the repetition and more practices help improve skills.
