Resources for Excellence Across the Curriculum - Spring 2021: EAC General Information

This guide contains resources for students participating in the annual Student Interdisciplinary Symposium.

What is it?


The goal of this project is to provide a forum for students across the disciplines to present about change-making, sustainability and human rights. Students will identify a social issue and demonstrate a deep awareness of the problem and/or propose sustainable solutions with a scholarly poster session, an art exhibit, oral presentation, and/or collaborative student project to their audience. This opportunity requires students to think critically and be involved with academic research, project based learning, and/or the creative process from start to finish over the course of the semester. 

Naturally, this authentic task integrates all of Miami Dade College’s Learning Outcomes (LO).
It focuses particularly on Communication (1), Information Literacy (4), and Civic Engagement (6). Since LO 1 develops students’ ability to communicate effectively in a variety of modes (listening, speaking, reading, and writing), not only does this showcase promote the learning outcome for the students presenting, but it also promotes this learning outcome for the students attending the event.
