Panelist Shawna Berk ’13, Paige Greene ‘13, Emily Howe ‘13, Logan Marro ‘13, Elizabeth Preysner ’13 and Anna Seidner ’13 during this Common Hour event, will reflect on their paths through the intellectual and social landscape of Trinity. What has made them more curious, and where has their curiosity taken them? The students on this panel will discuss questions such as: How does students’ time outside the classroom shape their intellectual lives, and how does their time inside the classroom shape their personal lives? What kinds of academic experiences have led students outside their comfort zone to explore something new—a new area of study, a new social group or organization, a new part of the campus or Hartford, a new sense of identity? What makes it hard or easy to cross between different groups, both academic and social?
 
Cultivating the Curious Student: Crossing the Boundaries between Social and Intellectual Life
What forms does curiosity take in different students? Are there ways to make students more curious? What can faculty members do to cultivate students’ curiosity? The Center for Teaching and Learning is pleased to sponsor a year-long conversation about the curious student. By considering student curiosity in broad terms, ranging from intellectual to social, we aim to promote dialogue about the place of academic work in students’ lives on campus; highlight effective strategies for motivating students; and develop new ideas about the particular challenges and opportunities for student engagement at Trinity.
