Summer Intensive Elective Workshops

May 22 - May 26 and June 12 - June 16

All workshops will be in Burkle 26

Important information for Summer Electives registration
The Summer Intensive Elective Workshops offer an immersive learning experience. This mode of learning requires sufficient opportunities to consolidate the information you are learning.  To that end:
  • If you attend at least 4 workshops in any given week, you must also attend one of the Synthesizing Knowledge Workshops on Friday.  In these Friday workshops, we will discuss the weekÌs workshops and explore how the topics fit together into a consolidated understanding of the material.  
  • Attending 4 or more workshops along with one of the Friday workshops will also mean you will complete a longer, synthesized reflection consolidating material from the workshops you attended during that week (similar to the Saturday Intensive reflections), rather than write 4+ individual reflections.
  • If you attend 3 or fewer workshops in any given week, you do not have to enroll in a Synthesizing Knowledge workshop. You will follow the usual practice and write the required 1 - 2 page reflection essay for each workshop you attend.

Workshops are marked as  "Mandatory" or "Elective" for those working toward the PFF Certificate in College Teaching. If you are not working toward the PFF Certificate but are still interested in developing your knowledge and skills as a teacher-scholar, you may attend the workshops on an ad hoc basis. All workshops are open to CGU students, alumni, faculty, and staff, as well as to the 7Cs community.
