“When Students Teach: The Honors Preceptorial” — National Honors Conference Presentation

With the success of the Chapman Honors course “Science NCHC Conference 2011Fiction: Questioning Reality,” a few honors students and I submitted a proposal for a presentation at the upcoming national honors conference. We were accepted, and became part of the “46th Annual Conference of the National Collegiate Honors Council.” It was a great conference, a fun time, and a chance to promote our University’s newly crafted pedagogical methods on a national level. (And to think it all started off with my indignation that the English department wouldn’t teach a sci-fi class).
