Join USC Connect's Irma VanScoy and Damara Hightower-Davis, along with winners of the 2013-2014 USC Connect--Center for Teaching Excellence Integrative Learning Grants, for a panel discussion featuring courses from a variety of disciplines that have incorporated integrative learning in innovative ways. Panelists will share assignments, pedagogical strategies and student responses to illustrate various pedagogical approaches to integrative learning. The session will conclude with a question-and-answer session, idea-sharing and information about next year's grant application process.
