FLC Topic: Teaching Honors/Scholars Courses at Xavier

Start date: August 2012

The goal of this FLC is to enhance the course-level and program-level teaching of honors students at Xavier. The FLC may consider how honors sections can become part of a common experience for honors students (especially University Scholars), regardless of major. We intend to look at the best practices at other institutions with successful honors programs. FLC members may visit and study honors programs at other universities; learn about how to incorporate new technologies into honors courses; discuss how to differentiate an honors course from a non-honors course; consider whether to propose common guidelines for honors courses; design or redesign particular honors courses that they teach; and explore other issues pertinent to teaching honors that the group determines.
