  3. The General Education ePortfolio Statement [if applicable] http://facultyeportfolioresource.weebly.com/
    • This course fulfills the [category] requirement for the General Education Program at
      Salt Lake Community College. It is designed not only to teach the information and
      skills required by the discipline, but also to develop vital workplace skills and to teach
      strategies and skills that can be used for life-long learning. General Education courses
      teach basic skills as well as broaden a student’s knowledge of a wide range of subjects.
      Education is much more than the acquisition of facts; it is being able to use information
      in meaningful ways in order to enrich one’s life.
      While the subject of each course is important and useful, we become truly educated
      through making connections of such varied information with the different methods of
      organizing human experience that are practiced by different disciplines. Therefore, this
      course, when combined with other General Education courses, will enable you to
      develop broader perspectives and deeper understandings of your community and the
      world, as well as challenge previously held assumptions about the world and its
      inhabitants.
