WHAT’S NEW AT THE CENTER FOR INNOVATIVE LEARNING (CIL)?
IT’S A BIG IDEA -- A REALLY BIG IDEA
What are the big ideas and issues – both contemporary and enduring – that we want and need to contemplate at length and in depth?
What is justice? How do we constitute beauty? Is time a reality? What does it mean to understand one’s vocation or to fulfill one’s civic duty? Who are the oppressed? How is the educated person to respond?
EACH YEAR A NEW ISSUE
Announcing . . .
BIG IDEA FOR FALL 2014
Each year Schreiner University choses a theme or “big idea” that asks the question: What are the big ideas and issues – both contemporary and enduring – that we want and need to contemplate at length and in depth? This year’s Big Idea theme, “The Art Battling Giants,” will explore the curious nature of advantages and disadvantages, and how each can—under certain circumstances—become its opposite. As a part of the Big Idea, Schreiner University has selected Malcom Gladwell’s book David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants to serve as a common reading for the campus
