    A representative from the BGS program will be visiting Harper College to discuss options for students who are interested in completing a bachelor’s degree. The program is ideal for adults who work full-time, serve as caregivers, raise families, and for whom a traditional degree program does not meet their needs given a busy life.

    Visit the EIU table located in the D Building, by Starbucks, for answers to questions about admission and transfer credit requirements. Courses are offered online, and face-to-face at various locations in the Chicagoland area.

    Critical thinking is one of the most important undergraduate learning goals adopted by EIU. Assessment data suggests that our students are not as proficient in this skill as their peers at other universities. This workshop is designed to address this issue. We will focus on best practices for direct instruction in teaching critical thinking skills. This workshop will include examples of lesson plans, in-class assignments, and participation in a group activity. We will also highlight critical thinking resources that are available to faculty.
