This spring, five Harper faculty members participated in the blended Graduate Equivalency Course (GEC), “Engaging Students in Diverse Perspectives.” Stephanie Adair, Malathy Chandrasekar, Magdalen McKinley, Karen Patterson, and Dominique Svarc examined methods of engaging students in Diverse Perspectives and Cultures, through content related to diverse perspectives across the disciplines, engaging students in issues related to diversity, addressing diversity challenges in the classroom, modifying content with attention to diverse perspectives and cultures, and equity in assessment. The course was developed as part of the Learning Assessment Committee’s efforts to improve student learning in relation to the Diverse Perspectives and Cultures general education outcome.

Each GEC participant also developed an assessment project relating to the course materials that they will implement in Summer or Fall 2019. These projects were presented at the 9th Annual International Education Summit on April 5. The pictures posted here show the variety of projects that faculty members developed as part of the course.

Want to learn more about these projects or how you might engage students in Diverse Perspectives & Cultures? Contact any of the GEC participants or Rich Johnson, Nellie Khalil, or Faon Grandinetti.
