The "speed dating" gave me several exciting ideas on how to connect across disciplines and classes. The Freshman Seminar teaches valuable "survival" skills to new students, and through my discussions with Community 2.0 participants, I might be able to collaborate on topics such as career development (Susan), and/or develop "Dear Abby" Q&A with (Phyllis) on student success skills. I also have a few aspiring Biology, Chemistry and Allied Health students in my seminars, and connecting with Karim's Biology class could introduce my first semester students to the rigorous Biology curriculum. Similarly, my FSM students could assist Karim's Biology students with effective study skills etc.
