Transforming Our World (Geneseo Experience 2021)

Transforming Our World (Geneseo Experience 2021)

Follow along with students taking a bridge course in July 2021 as they experience the ways a liberal arts education helps you prepare for 21st-century careers that are increasingly geared toward flexible, interdisciplinary employees. The Preamble to the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals, a radical plan for a “collective journey” towards a healed, prosperous planet, aims at nothing less than “transforming our world.” In this virtual July course, you’ll discover how a public liberal arts approach to college at SUNY Geneseo will help you bring together the knowledge and skills of many disciplines in order to make a positive difference on the world around you, locally and globally.

Individualized Studies Major – Portfolios

An Individualized Studies Major (ISM), either as a B.A. or B.S., allows students to design a sequence of courses that achieve an interdisciplinary project and to reflect on and articulate their goals in pursuing this undergraduate major with an eye to research opportunities, career development, and becoming “socially responsible and globally aware citizens who are prepared for an enriched life and success in the world” (Geneseo Mission Statement).

Digital Scholarly Editing in the Undergraduate Classroom

Digital Scholarly Editing in the Undergraduate Classroom

In this series of three online meetings in October, 2020 sponsored jointly by the SUNY Geneseo Center for Digital Learning and the New York Digital Humanities community, we’ll explore the joys and challenges of digital editing and encoding in the undergraduate classroom. The first meeting will provide a theoretical framework for thinking about encoded scholarly editions. The second will showcase a pedagogy-focused open educational resource on digital scholarly editing based on the recently digitized manuscript of Henry David Thoreau’s Walden. The third will invite participants to engage in community discussion of their experience with editing and encoding in the undergraduate classroom. The series is for anyone who’s incorporated editing or encoding work in their teaching — or wondered if they should and could. It’s an opportunity for teaching faculty, librarians, technologists and others to learn, discuss, and share. Everyone’s welcome, at every level from novice to expert.

Organizations

Center for Digital Learning

Center for Digital Learning

Education and knowledge-creation in the twenty-first century are unimaginable without digital tools for research and creative expression, classroom learning, and learning at a distance. At SUNY Geneseo, the Center for Digital Learning works to put these tools within reach of all faculty, staff, and students. We also work to ensure that these tools are used responsibly and effectively in ways that advance student success, promote equity, respect diversity, and foster inclusiveness.
