Honors College seeking 2022-23 seminar proposals
The University Honors College invites proposals for not fewer than 18 seminars to be offered during the 2022-2023 academic year. Honors Seminars are junior/senior-level courses and may be on any subject; interdisciplinary proposals are strongly encouraged.
Seminars are small, highly interactive, with a limit of 15 students, focusing on discussion, paper writing, problem-solving, or group projects. Except in rare cases, the college cannot accept proposals for team-taught classes. The Honors Board (faculty/student) will rank proposals in January and the director will contact successful applicants and their department chairs to discuss schedules.
Proposals should not exceed two typewritten, double-spaced pages but may include in addition, sample syllabi, bibliographies, or other attachments. Instructors who have taught in Honors previously must include class evaluations for those classes or a representative sample. Faculty who have not previously taught an Honors class should include evaluations for similar classes, e.g., small, discussion-oriented or problem-solving classes.
WHERE: Send proposals in electronic form only to Honors@wwu.edu.
WHEN: Proposals are due no later than 5 pm on Friday, Jan. 14, 2022.
