Dear CASL Colleagues,
The purpose of this message is to share several items pertaining to CASL Practice-Based Learning (PBL). However, before getting to that, I want to take a moment to express an appreciation for all that CASL faculty and staff do to contribute to the College and campus. Although the focus has been on PBL these past few semesters, this does not detract from the many ways in which faculty and staff contribute to the mission of the College.
At the moment our approach to PBL may seem rather narrow - like a closed umbrella - with a strong focus on the curriculum. This is to provide both a clear starting point and a strong base for the initiative. Once the curriculum piece is in place, there will be many opportunities to include much of what we do for students under a wide open PBL umbrella.
