SLS faculty, as part of the post workshop, will visit one faculty member from another discipline (excluding psychology and sociology) and explore how SLS may be embedded within their particular discipline. The participant will then recommend SLS learning strategies that are essential to that particular discipline. This assignment shall be submitted to one of the faculty conveners within four weeks of the workshop (no later than May 14th, 2012). Anonymous excerpts may become part of the Program Assessment Team's data depository.
