Abstract/Description

Building on our 2021 Learning Teaching Forum and the Academic Senate’s five-year review of CAP, this panel brings together the four CAP Component Coordinators — Elizabeth Mackay (Humanities Commons), Cassandra Secrease (Principles of Oral Communication, CMM 100), Christopher Brough (Social Science Interdisciplinary SSC 200), and Youssef Farhat (Diversity and Social Justice) — to discuss what we are learning about our components and their values, purposes, and roles in practice.

More specifically, we will think together about how our components help us rediscover our roles as coordinators facilitating these conversations; better understand our institutional learning goals and values; and reflect on what has changed or is changing about our components.

Goals for Attendees

Attendees will be able to: 1) Learn more about the CAP program, its innovative design, and its value in preparing students to understand the complexities of the world and the crises of the now and the future 2) Meet the CAP Component Coordinators and learn about their roles supporting faculty in course design, development, and learning assessments. 3) Have a clearer understanding of how CAP components set a foundation for student engagement with our institutional learning goals.
