For one-on-one help with course design, Megan Hartline is willing and excited to work with you on thinking through preliminary ideas, designing assignments (especially those focused on writing), choosing readings, or building partnerships.
If you are more interested in a group context, CLI holds brainstorming events throughout the year, which can be useful for those interested in incorporating community learning into an upcoming course, fine tuning an existing course, or hearing about what other faculty are doing. Please join us for lively conversation and a light lunch at one of these events!
