Belmont Faculty Present at Lilly Conference

Several Belmont faculty members, sponsored by the Teaching Center and General Education, attended the annual Lilly Conference November 16-18 at Miami University in Oxford, OH. They did a presentation on Belmont’s new Junior Cornerstone Seminar, a problem-based learning course required at Belmont as part of a broader general education curriculum. The panel explained the overarching goals for the new course, described how the third-year experience fits into the broader structure of the general education program, illustrated the course through examples of individual sections of the seminar, described ongoing strategies of assessment and offered preliminary observations as to the effectiveness of the course.
