courses

Faculty teams for a variety of departments have developed six new team-taught courses on specific themes related to Seattle's Southeast Asian communities, pluralism, and free expression. All courses have innovative dimensions drawn from the pedagogy workshops, designed to connect students with local Southeast Asian American communities in Seattle. Courses will be taught during academic year 2007-2008. Enrollment will vary from twenty-five to one hundred students.  Courses will be permanent new courses and may be used to count towards a Diversity Minor.
