General Education Blog: To render the work of the Ad Hoc Committee on General Education more transparent to our faculty colleagues, I created this blog that held the minutes of all our meetings as well as links to relevant documents and websites informing our work.
During my 25 years in the Saint Mary's College Information Technology Department, my principle responsibilities as Director of Instructional Technology involved support for faculty. During this entire time, my relationship with Joe Incandela was primarily that of an apprentice to a skilled and masterful Teacher. Never satisfied to follow the crowd, conversations with Joe always revealed a demanding and profound desire to learn from students and colleagues, creative ways in which teaching could be enriched so as to enable and motivate deeper student learning or to make more effective use of faculty efforts. Professor Incandela's leadership as a teacher among the faculty, and his reputation among students for innovative new approaches, gave added significance to my work with Joe. His very high pedagogical standards, while maintaining very positive relationships with students, peers and the staff, are clear evidence of leadership ability, which continues to be evident in challenging Administrative responsibilities.
