Nadia Raza shared her research on honors programs and honors colleges and her vision for the program at Lane. She provided faculty interested in developing honors curriculum with Ken Bain's "What the Best College Teachers Do", and with a handout with reflection for honors level instruction.
Ce Rosenow, Program Co-Coordinator, reviewed the faculty and student application forms and processes, which have been through numerous iterations and reviews.
Group discussion was quite engaged and centered around topics of course and student assessment, registration and other logistics, workload and seniority, and division and discipline communication.
