PaCampus-wide IE Kick-off Workshop

With the support of the Davis Educational Foundation, the General Education Council of the Faculty Senate and the Provost's Office hosted two workshops for IE.

“The Integrative Experience, Learning, and Reflection” - Kathleen Yancey - Florida State University

This workshop aimed to help clarify key terms of the IE (What do we mean when we say integrative experience, learning, and reflection?), explore assignments that address integrative learning and identify options for your department. The various IE models already being developed by Davis IE Fellows were presented.
