UNM In Time of Ware
 Inside UNM | UNM Home   

Dear UNM Teaching Community:

During the remainder of this semester, many classroom instructors may be faced with the challenges and opportunities associated with classroom discussions of the war in Iraq. Some disciplines may lend themselves to planned discussions of the war while discussions may occur spontaneously in other courses.

The University is a member of the Professional and Organizational Development Network in Higher Education (POD). That organization is recommending a website at the University of Michigan as an excellent source of materials for faculty regarding class discussions about the war in Iraq. That website address is http://www.crlt.umich.edu/wariniraqdiscussion.html (You may have to cut and paste that into your browser location/address bar.)

POD also sponsors a listserv for postsecondary faculty development officers and faculty members. Discussions about guidelines for faculty regarding the war have been taking place on the list this month. Subscription information to that list is available through the CASTL website at http://www.unm.edu/~castl/ under Links.

Public Affairs is preparing information for the campus; included will be the University of Michigan web site and the excellent document prepared by the UNM FS Undergraduate Committee after the September 11 tragedy. (That document was based upon a similar document prepared at the University of Michigan.)

We will post additional resources on the CASTL website as they become available.
