The Augustana General Education Studies (AGES) program at Augustana College is an interdisciplinary endeavour to build students' ability to communicate, locate and evaluate information, and apply critical and creative thinking throughout their liberal education curriculum. The use of visual art and written documents is at the centerpiece of the AGES curriculum, and is an elegant example of how liberal learning can be infused into most program curricula. Dr. Catherine C. Goebel will describe the process that led to the implementation of the AGES program, highlighting the advantages of the program and the obstacles faced along the way. She will describe the AGES curriculum, and highlight exemplary faculty and student works.
