FELI – Five-Day Experiential Learning Institute

 

The FELI is a five-day transformative learning experience that mirrors our PERSIST Program’s Foundations Course, which kicks off the beginning of each college bridge semester. Teachers, counselors and administrators experience an essential component of the program as an educationally disadvantaged student does.

 

Using curriculum developed by the nationally renowned Academy for College Excellence, we will identify and explore:

  • Leadership and Learning Styles of ourselves and others
  • Positive Team Building
  • Listening techniques toward effective communication
  • Reflection toward self-management of behaviors
  • Faculty-specific discussion about teaching and learning in the evolving classroom

 

 

This link to the Academy for College Excellence (ACE) website provides more on this game-changing experience:

Who this may benefit most:

All faculty, staff and administrators who work with basic skills students, especially in key “gateway” classes, and who understand that managing life experiences (students and our own) makes the biggest difference in just educational access.

Spring11 FIG-14 Global Studies Interdisciplinary Work

Area: Global Studies

Participants:

Research Question:

How can the Global Studies program provide meaningful interdisciplinary work for all of its students?

Research Methods:

Surveyed students in one cohort and interviewed students in another.

Findings:

  1. Students liked the idea of tying curriculum from one course to the next, especially if the English class would help students write papers for Art History;
  2. Students want to see more variety in assignments, particularly joint class projects.

Resolution:

  1. Instructors will work to integrate some assignments in Fall 2011 in the Global Studies program.

Final Reports:
