February 19, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Zoom Web Conference,

Integrating Civic Outcomes Across a Major or Program: Curriculum design and mapping for civic learning In this webinar attendees will focus on identifying, articulating, and mapping civic learning and developmental outcomes (civic identity, civic-mindedness, civic agency, civic literacy, intercultural competency, etc.) for their program of study or major.
