Presented for UAB faculty by Blazer Core Curriculum. This workshop provides an overview of the Blazer Core Curriculum's innovative course flagging program, with a distinctive focus on how that program connects to UAB's identity as the first Health Promoting University in the United States. Dr. Rebecca Kennedy, Assistant Vice President for Student Health and Wellbeing will present UAB's work and vision as an HPU. In addition, participants will come away with an understanding of how the flagging program encourages students to curate and reflect upon their experiences in the core, as well as with new ideas for core courses and assignments that present wellbeing from a systems-based approach, one that provides opportunities for student research, writing, service-learning, and other high-impact practices in core classrooms.
Registration is strongly encouraged for in-person attendance so that we can notify participants of any unexpected schedule changes and ensure that we have the correct amount of food if a meal is provided. UAB faculty are always welcome to show up to in-person CTL events without registering. However, if you do attend without registering, we ask that if food is being served, you wait until all pre-registered participants have gotten their food before serving yourself.
*Lunch will be served at this event. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions or if your schedule changes and you are unable to attend.
