Working with Liberal Studies Director Annette Schwabe and two other faculty members, Professor Stewart contributed to an initial action plan for further development of FSU’s distinctive E-Series course program. The work was supported by faculty and staff at the Association of American Colleges and Universities, whose aim is to make liberal education and inclusive excellence the foundation for educational practice in higher education, in Boston, June 4-8.
The E-Series courses focus on broad questions that are relevant to humanity and our natural world and can be explored, examined, and experimented upon (thus the “E”). The courses are created for non-majors and are designed to foster critical thinking in allowing students to compare multiple perspectives on persistent issues. Students will become: interdisciplinary thinkers, lifelong learners, and team builders.
