    Common Intellectual Experiences

    Common Intellectual Experiences as a High-Impact Learning Practice (from AAC&U):

    "The older idea of a “core” curriculum has evolved into a variety of modern forms, such as a set of required common courses or a vertically organized general education program that includes advanced integrative studies and/or required participation in a learning community. These programs often combine broad themes—e.g., technology and society, global interdependence—with a variety of curricular and cocurricular options for students."
