The Center for Academic Excellence is promoting dialogue that explores new approaches to curriculum across the campus. As always, these discussions strive to introduce new perspectives on the curriculum. This includes cross departmental collaboration on projects, sharing ideas and approaches to our content and pedagogy, the exploration of new areas of research, etc. These discussions also reflect the possibility of introducing Distance Learning as a viable component of various disciplines; deliberately including discipline specific technology and computer skills into degree programs; creating courses that meet specific community needs; and promoting/supporting programs that are pioneering new areas of and approaches to research.
This is part of the commitment by Millersville University and the Center for Academic Excellence to be a Community of Learners. We will continue to rethink our knowledge and methods of instruction as we strive to be learners as well as instructors (knowing that the two inform each other).
