|Title||First Year Coordinated Science Program (CSP): Enhanced Interdisciplinary Learning in First Year Science for Larger Groups|
CSP’s objective is to be an engaging interdisciplinary first-year science program that will provide students with a much richer educational experience than the mainstream program, through a cost-effective and sustainable approach.
The rationale behind the creation and development of the CSP program comes from our belief that we can provide our students with a much richer educational experience than the mainstream program by coordinating the teaching of the different science courses and by explicitly making connections between them.
Our main methods of achieving the above objective are:
Items 1 and 3 require little or no funding. Almost the entire funding request is for the continuation and improvement of the workshops.
