Have you ever noticed that students seem to get stuck at certain points in your class? The decoding the disciplines process, developed at Indiana University, is designed to help faculty identify those â€œstickingâ€ points and design ways to assist students through these â€œbottlenecksâ€. On Thursday February 17 and Friday February 18, 2011, we were fortunate to have several members of this group join us for a series of university conversations and workshops on this process. Mark your calendars and plan on joining us for this two day exploration of student learning through scholarly teaching and decoding the disciplines.
