Please allow me a few days to establish our Moodle website for posting “talk” reflections. The site will add worthy scholarship interactions in which you might wish to participate.
The following text is a brief description of the course’s basic information:
EPSY 200 HONORS SYMPOSIUM IN EDUCATION
The purpose of this course is to consider a broad range of the contemporary issues of teaching and learning in the field of education. On our campus, presentations are held frequently to consider the impacts of research findings on many disciplines. A fair number of these talks are relevant and related to issues in education.
EPSY 200 is designed to take advantage of these scholarly presentations and their respective research agendas. During the semester, students will attend THREE self-selected scholarly presentations offered by outstanding visiting and resident professors. Students will be asked 1) to read research articles authored by those professors presenting, and 2) to write reflective summaries of the attended presentations.
The course reflection assignments are managed by a course Website: https://learn.illinois.edu/
All students enrolled in the course are provided access to this facility. I will manage the course announcements and the Moodle site this semester.
Four Saturday seminars will be held to share ideas and reactions to current issues in the field of Education. These meetings will begin at 10:00 AM in 210 A EDUCATION. Attendance is required for at least 2.
Course grading is based on participation.
