Longwood and the 2016 Vice Presidential Debate

Course Development Proposals

The Committee on General Education, in conjunction with CAFE, the Center for Faculty Enrichment, invite faculty to submit course development proposals related to the fall 2016 Vice Presidential debate. Please note that this initiative is not limited to general education courses; pursuant to its charge to “encourage the teaching and learning of written and oral communication skills throughout the University” (FPPM, p. 192), the committee encourages participation from the broadest possible spectrum of faculty and disciplines.  The Call for Proposals (and the evaluative rubric the committee will be using) can be downloaded below.
