Integrating the Scholarship on Women: Transforming the Curriculum.
Coulter, Sara; Hedges, Elaine
Townson State University's 3-year project integrated new scholarship on women into the curriculum, with emphasis on introductory survey courses in eight disciplines: art, biology, business, education, English, history, psychology, and sociology. About 70 faculty met in workshops for five semesters to (1) read and discuss new scholarship on women; (2) evaluate current syllabi and create new syllabi incorporating the new scholarship; and (3) prepare to teach the new syllabi in their classes. Workshop activity was supplemented by three conferences on integrating the new scholarship on women into the curriculum, on interdisciplinary study, and on pedagogy. The project concluded with an area conference to disseminate its results to neighboring institutions. Other products of the project include a 140-page booklet entitled "Resources for Curriculum Change" and six issues of a newsletter describing the processes and outcomes of the project. (Author/MSE)
