The four projects selected for Year One of the Elon University Initiative (academic year 1999-2000) were as follows:
1) Professor David Crowe (history) and 2 student associates David Fuhr and Halle Haniewich -- for design and study of different "student as teacher; teacher as student" models in the context of undergraduate student research.
2) Professors Kathy Gallucci, Lisa Carloye, Mona DeVries (biology) and 4 student associates - for design and study of more relevant, inquiry-based course and laboratory components in Biology 101 /102 to better engage non-majors.
3) Professor Janet
MacFall (Environmental Studies) and Professor Doug Redington
(economics) and 11 student associates for a project whereby students in
diverse fields will be coached to serve as "expert" resource
persons to faculty and students in a simulation on an environmental issue
(similar to Model UN) to be designed for use in our first-year Global
4) Professor Anthony Weston (philosophy) in collaboration with Professor Catherine King (psychology), Professor Larry Simon (education) and 6 student associates -- for a project to utilize three "linked" courses offered in spring 2000 -- Philosophy of Education, Educational Psychology and Foundations of Education as a mini-"learning community" and to add a special 2sh integrative seminar for 20 students from the 3 classes to investigate issues in reflective integration.
