Brandon Inabinet and Aaron Simmons
Description of the idea: Students in the Humanities course were asked to attend science presentations and report on 2-3 encounters in terms of the underlying epistemologies (naïve realism) "it was found that," perspectival claims "I was in the lab and saw X," or advanced social construction, "faculty and students reviewed one another's ideas and though we didn't agree exactly on the language of X we did see that Y was the case under condition Z."

Description of the idea:  Students may drop their lowest homework grade if they attend three optional events relevant to class and write a brief report on what they learn and how they reacted to the event.  They may use a Furman Engaged panel as one of these optional events.
