Norwich Humanities Initiative Poster (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Norwich Humanities Initiative Poster
Author: Lea Williams
Author: Amy Woodbury Tease
Abstract: The Norwich Humanities Initiative (NHI) is a university-wide General Education curriculum and programming initiative developed to increase the visibility and engagement with the Humanities at Norwich University, a goal that aligns with the university’s 200-year-old vision of fostering citizen scholars. This initiative was founded in 2018 with support of a $35,000 Humanities Connections planning grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). In Spring 2020, we received two three-year Implementation Grants from the NEH and the Davis Educational Foundation totaling $240,000 to expand and institutionalize the initiative. Our poster presentation will provide examples of how the NHI supports inclusive and collaborative interdisciplinary student learning opportunities, professional development opportunities for faculty, and programming with internal and external partners with specific emphasis on the Humanities. We will highlight the development and success of our team-taught “Topics in Interdisciplinary Humanities” courses, including Narrative Medicine, Geoarchaeology of Lost Cities, and True Crime, developed to fulfill General Education Humanities requirements. We will also offer examples of pedagogical workshops, student research fellowships, and experiential learning opportunities currently under development. Finally, we will share assessment results from our partnership with the National Humanities Alliance (NHA) to demonstrate how the initiative has produced significant learning outcomes, enhanced students' capacity to make connections across distinct areas of study, and increased students’ appreciation of liberal education and its professional, social, and civic value.
