Call for Participation in GE Paths
Several years ago, CSUN rolled out a new GE curriculum designed to engage students with the core questions underlying the challenges of the 21st century through cross disciplinary inquiry, analysis and application. The GE Path Initiative builds on this promising new beginning by highlighting clusters of related courses, thereby providing coherent ways of traversing the rich thicket of courses that constitute the GE curriculum. Three "paths"—social justice, global studies and sustainability—are the first to be identified, with several more likely to follow in 2013-14.
Faculty currently teaching General Education courses are invited to submit their existing courses for inclusion in any one of the first three GE Paths. Courses must contain content that is related to the appropriate path and should meet at least two of the student learning outcomes that have been identified for each path. Faculty who participate will receive a stipend and are expected to become actively involved in the program.
Proposals should be submitted on the course proposal form posted on the GE Paths web site and a course syllabus should be appended to each completed form. Proposals for Spring 2013 courses must be submitted by September 14, 2012. Courses for inclusion in later semesters are welcome anytime. Proposals will be reviewed and approved by the GE Paths Advisory Board. Please email your proposal and any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
