Faculty InformationAre you a full-time or adjunct faculty member interested in teaching an Honors course? We have created this resource for faculty members to find information about designing and teaching Honors courses. Most faculty members find that teaching an Honors course is a very challenging and rewarding experience. Dr. Wynn Gadkar-Wilcox, professor of history, has said that:
"Teaching an Honors course offers an instructor two main assets: academic rigor and intellectual diversity. With an Honors course, you have the freedom to push students with reading and writing assignments that are far more challenging than typical classes. But even more important is that students in Honors classes come from a wide variety of majors from across the university. These classes benefit from the habits of thinking that students develop in their various disciplines. It is these opportunities for cross-pollination that make teaching Honors courses so exciting."
This is an example of a course syllabus that received rave reviews when it was presented before the Honors Council - Sample Honors Course Syllabus.
