General Education Conference

Call For Proposals

Baruch College’s General Education Committee devised the conference's theme (Gen Ed: Making it Work and Making it Matter) to be broad enough to include all aspects of General Education. We are particularly interested in areas such as best practices and assessment (Does our teaching work? How do we know?) and student engagement (Do students care? What might encourage them to care?). We’re very interested in innovative approaches such as learning communities, e-portfolios, and service learning — how we use them and how we know whether they work. Proposals on these and other topics will be gratefully received. There will be a total of four one-hour sessions, and either individual or panel presentations may be submitted.

Proposals are due by March 14
