Please bring 1. a copy of your course syllabus; and 2. instructions for a course assignment that addresses at least one Mason Core learning outcome.

Note: These are the big meetings. During the semester, we will be happy to hold smaller meetings by request. Perhaps you want to group with other faculty teaching the same class? Or, you want to plan a meeting focused for your department or college faculty? Just ask! Contact Stephanie Foster at sfoste21@gmu.edu.

The post-assessment meetings for Global Understanding and Western Civilization/World History will take place in early February, 2018. The schedule will be posted by end of November.
