The Honors College seeks creative proposals from full-time faculty to teach 1-credit or 3-credit courses in the Honors College curriculum. In academic year 2020-2021, we anticipate offering approximately 28 sections of HON 1000 courses (25 in fall 2020) and approximately 12 sections of HON 3260 (Interdisciplinary Seminar, 3280 (Service Learning), 3750 (Forum), or 4500 (Enduring Question) split between fall, spring, May, and summer semesters. The Honors College encourages course proposals which incorporate either:
New for Academic Year 20-21
HON 1000 course proposals must include as an assignment the College to Career Online Orientation Course, available to all students through iCollege. Proposals must also link course objectives to college to career learning objectives. Faculty can use this tool to accomplish this goal. Assessments of learning must align with course-linked college to career objectives. A proposed HON 1000 can be linked to an EPIC learning experience (Experiential Project-based Interdisciplinary Curriculum) course pairing with PERS 2001/2001 and ENG 1103).
HON 3000-4000 courses must link course objectives with college to career learning objectives. Faculty can use this tool to easily accomplish this goal. Assessments of learning must align with course-linked college to career objectives and should produce evidence of learning suitable for students’ Portfolium accounts.
This year, we ask that proposals respond in some way to the theme of civic responsibility/civic virtue. The entire course does not have to be centered around this topic, but some aspect of civic responsibility/civic virtue should be addressed. Two resources to help you consider how you can approach this theme include an article published by the American Bar Association on an alternative view of civic duties and a document from Tennessee State University defining citizenship and civic responsibility.
