I enjoyed meeting all of you yesterday and really enjoyed hearing about your interesting course ideas. I wish I could take all of your courses! I have attached the presentation from our workshop and the homework is repeated below.
I think there was some confusion about pairing. You are NOT required to pair. We just wanted to give you the opportunity to talk with some of the folks in the group to see if pairing would make sense for you.
For those of you that were unable to attend the first workshop, I will contact you separately to arrange a make-up session.

•Use what we did today to identify (3) civic issues or community projects you could use as the nexus for your course.
•Try to tie these issues to a course you are currently teaching or plan to teach.
•Post your three ideas to the blog within one week (Oct 26). Include a brief introduction of yourself.
