Daemen College expects that all graduates will attain a set of competencies, such as Critical Thinking, Information Literacy and effective Written Communication. These skills are developed in the context of the classroom, where faculty design intentional learning activities that promote skill development, then assess achievement through course tasks, projects, and papers that are regularly assigned in the courses they teach. This collection of assignments developed of adapted by Daemen faculty was initiated and continually curated by Dr. Intisar Hibschweiler and Dr. Erica Frisicaro-Pawlowski.
From Magna Publishing, these 20-minute videos address evergreen topics in teaching and learning.
