Webinar: The Critical Role of General Education

Online event

Webinar | Inside Higher Ed

New college students ask one another “what’s your major?” Politicians and pundits opine about the subjects students should be encouraged to pursue (or not) as majors. Yet experts say that general education may be as important as, if not more important than, the major when it comes to determining the quality of undergraduate education.

Topics to be discussed on this webinar include:

  • How colleges are experimenting with joint teaching
  • New ways of designing general education models
  • Why some universities are using full-time faculty to teach freshmen courses
