Connecting Communities: Ideas for Xavier's Newest Course
XCOR 1010: Connecting Communities is one of the foundational components of the new Core Curriculum. In this course, students will be exposed to the rigors of academic coursework through a topic-based study of either the ideals of Xavier's mission or the uniqueness of Xavier's hometown. While all sections of the course will be designed to meet common objectives, every section will be developed around a special topic determined by the faculty member teaching that section. Xavier's new core is designed to give our students a great amount of choice, and XCOR 1010 will be their first opportunity to chose a class because the topic interests them.
In this interactive session, attendees will learn about some of the basic expectations for every XCOR 1010 class and then will work together to develop ideas for topics that will engage both them and the students. Attendees interested in proposing an XCOR 1010 class will leave this workshop with a topic, title, and description for their proposed class.
