The U.S. Department of Energy's National Lab Day will be held on the campus of The University of Toledo on October 10th and 11th.  The event brings to Toledo leading scientists and engineers from the national laboratories (Oak Ridge, Lawrence Berkeley, Argonne, etc.) to discuss how the labs can connect and work with universities and industry in our region.  The directors of 11 national labs are participating.  Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur is also a keynote speaker and will participate as well.  If you are interested in attending, contact Libby Romanin at lromanin@bgsu.edu.

This workshop will focus on designing specific, measurable civic learning outcomes.  This workshop will address the definition and components of civic learning, as well as how attention to semantics and syntax in learning outcomes can help instructors to design assignments that enable clear assessment of student learning.  Participants are encouraged to bring their syllabi and current learning outcomes for review and adding of civic learning outcomes.  Workshop goals and learning objectives include:

  • To define and clarify definitions of civic engagement, civic learning, and civic mindedness.
  • To promote the use of civic learning outcomes in courses across the curriculum.
  • To provide faculty and staff with the tools to design and assess civic learning in their courses and programs.
