Shenandoah University has been selected to participate in the second Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) Consortium for Online Humanities Instruction, made possible by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
CIC received many more proposals than the number of spaces available in the consortium, and the volume and quality of the proposals reflect the commitment of independent colleges and universities to pedagogical innovation and excellence in the humanities.
Shenandoah will send team members to three national workshops between now and the summer of 2018. Substitutions will be allowed only in exceptional circumstances. The first national workshop will take place August 7–9, 2016, in Alexandria, Virginia.
Shenandoah’s successful proposal for participation was written by Director for Transformative Teaching and Learning in the Center for Teaching, Learning & Technology Anne Marchant, Ph.D.; Assistant Professor of English Sarah Canfield Fuller, Ph.D.; Assistant Professor of Religion Meredith Minister, Ph.D, and Susan Dawson of Hornet Central.
