CC100 course clusters & CC100/CC120 pairing
The Crown Lunch on October 10 was focused on brainstorming possible CC100 thematic clusters and ideas for pairing CC100 & CC120 courses. The results of that workshop became the start of a living Google document where we encourage all interested faculty to add new ideas for courses and themes, as well as to connect with other interested faculty.
