Abstract

How do we engage students in science while at the same time ensuring they become familiar with central ideas? This workshop encouraged and aided faculty in the development of ideas and approaches to GE science courses. We asked the question: were there ideas common to all GE science courses that we should promulgate? Participants were encouraged to come with their list of course aims and their thoughts on this question.
