In the mid-1990s, when Elon moved from a three to four-hour curriculum, faculty agreed the purpose was to experiment with new pedagogies, active learning, writing strategies and collaborative learning, helping Elon become the engaged, experiential community it is today. Now that several years have passed since the four-hour system was implemented, it's appropriate to review what's been accomplished by this change and reflect upon future directions.

This website showcases some of the innovative activities that have been implemented. Investigate curricular innovations by clicking the link for All Activities or any of the links for the subject areas shown at left. The 4th Hour Reflections and Suggested Readings links provide additional food for thought.
