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.
