Test Your Knowledge!
The Engaged Learning Series (ELS) is a university-wide series of events designed to engage students, faculty, staff, and community in discussion, debate, dialogue, learning, and action around an issue of public concern.
For 2018-2019, the series aims to raise awareness, impact personal behavior, and increase public engagement around the theme of "Matter of Fact?" #MatterOfFact
- What is fact?
- What is truth?
- What is opinion?
- What is myth?
- What constitutes a reliable source?
- Why does science/history matter?
- Why does logic matter?
- Can critical thinking be done right or wrong?
- How do you articulate facts?
Throughout 2018-19, we will view "Matter of Fact?" through six prisms, culture, economics, education, health, politics, and environment. Please consider ways in which you might incorporate this theme into your teaching, planning, and discussions this year.
