This summer, nearly 50 members of the Harrington School community gathered on the Bay Campus for CAMP HARRINGTON, a unique faculty development and curriculum renewal program.
When others are taking summer vacation, faculty, students and friends of the Harrington School have come together to plan and develop new programs and courses that offer a fresh approach to teaching and learning. Teams of faculty are exploring how to support student leadership, create an interdisciplinary undergraduate major, improve the quality of graduate education, and strengthen media and technology skills of students and faculty.
According to Renee Hobbs, Professor and Founding Director, "CAMP HARRINGTON is a way for our curriculum to stay responsive to the rapidly-changing global economy. We're having a summer camp experience that will enable us to build the future of the school."
During the spring 2012 semester, the faculty participated in a strategic planning process, identifying the vision and mission for the school and setting a course towards these three goals: (1) develop innovative interdisciplinary programs, (2) increase real-world learning experience for students, and (3) improve the flexibility and reach of academic programs through blended, low residency and online learning.
