(View Boise State’s Courses)



“Why do I need to take this class?” Courses outside their major change what students know, do, and become. Join your colleagues from across Boise State to talk about how we can better transmit the personal, professional, and social power of general education and the University’s shared learning goals to students. Then join a breakout workshop to more deeply consider your own course and disciplinary category.

The Summit will conclude with Boise State’s first annual University Foundations Teaching Awards celebrating exemplary teaching for non-majors. Several winning instructors will become Boise State’s nominees to Idaho’s new statewide awards.
