The Committee for Multicultural Curriculum Transformation is collecting unpublished articles from faculty and staff members for a book pertaining to the institute dating back to 1994.
Individuals who participated in or presented at NIU’s summer multicultural institute are invited to submit articles or outlines describing transformed courses, institute activities, goals, methods and outcomes.
The book will include information on how to plan a successful institute, as well as articles about transformed courses and inclusive teaching styles.
Past participants are encouraged to submit articles or detailed outlines based on their final projects or other transformation efforts.
Articles or detailed outlines about other educational transformation efforts that resulted from participation in the institute, such as grant projects or engaged learning activities, or submissions about transformed courses should:
- explain why the class or activity needed restructuring;
- outline goals and outcomes; and
- describe innovative activities.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed.
The deadline is Tuesday, May 1, and articles should be between 3,000 and 5,000 words. Entries must be submitted as Microsoft Word files with attached syllabi to firstname.lastname@example.org.
