Position Summary :

AF399B is offered in conjunction with Laurier International for international students in the Arts.The course builds a series of skills-based modules into the theme of international espionage and intrigue primarily during the Cold War. This active learning course will be skill-focused, interactive and promote discussion. It is dedicated to helping students discover an academic path in the Faculty of Arts and to equipping them to succeed at this.  This course offers a high impact teaching practice meant to engage international students and to provide them with core competencies that will lay the foundation for success in subsequent University courses. The core competencies will include the ability to communicate clearly, orally and in writing; to work cooperatively in groups; and to think critically, which includes the ability to evaluate alternative explanations. This course is most effective, as formative feedback on student work is provided on a regular basis throughout the term, and when only a relatively small portion of a student’s grade is determined by any one assignment. This course will also provide the opportunity to acquire and demonstrate the core competencies mentioned above. These criteria, then, will be taken into account by the selection committee.
