Who we are …
The Innovative Course-Building Group (IC-bG) is a grass-roots social network for learning that supports teaching faculty and staff across disciplines. We use civic issues as a catalyst for designing engaging courses that will result in important student learning.
Our guiding principles …
- Time is valuable: gatherings are deliberately designed to be productive, meaningful, and enjoyable uses of this limited resource.
- Good ideas recycled, refined, and adapted become great ideas.
- Teaching and learning rarely happen in isolation: collaboration supports innovation.

The ICbG is a community of life-long learners. We encourage our participants to become mentors to future ICbGers and engage in long (and short)-term planning for the group. Our mentors represent many disciplines and interest, which adds to the unique character of this group.
