Meeting Times: Three Friday mornings over the spring semester, 11:30 am to 1:30pm

The mission of UCF’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), What’s Next: Integrative Learning for Professional and Civic Preparation, is to prepare our graduates to successfully enter and participate in the next steps of their professional and civic lives through integrative learning. In order to achieve this mission, the QEP has funded numerous faculty and staff projects, workshops, and events focused on creating a culture of integrative learning at UCF. As we enter the second phase of the QEP, we are now looking to expand our dynamic repository of resources and share the expertise of those who have championed integrative learning at UCF.

This call for proposals is for faculty and staff who are interested writing a resource page targeting UCF faculty and staff on a topic of integrative learning. Examples of these resources can be found here. No web design experience is required for this workshop, only your expertise.

Topics may include, but are by no means limited to:

  • reflection and metacognitive assignments
  • integrative-learning assignments
  • ePortfolio integration
  • student professionalization assignments
  • interdisciplinary collaboration
  • Integrative-Learning Experience (IE) designated courses
  • course-level student advisory boards

Deliverables may vary depending upon the topic but will include a brief profile in an “about me” section and some discussion of integrative learning which may include reflections on best practices, implementation, challenges, success stories, and examples.

Participants will receive $500 at the end of the spring 2019 semester upon successful completion of deliverables and attendance at the three collaboration meetings. Lunch and refreshments will be provided at each session.

Space is limited. To apply, please send a brief statement (no more than 200 words) describing your area of integrative-learning expertise, how it benefits undergraduate students, and how it might translate across disciplines.

For questions, or to apply, please contact QEP@ucf.edu.
