Faculty continue the discussion by responding to the student panelists and commenting on the roles faculty do, can, or should play—either in or out of the classroom—in furthering students’ curiosity and encouraging them to explore new avenues of inquiry. Cultivating the Curious Student: Crossing the Boundaries between Social and Intellectual Life What forms does curiosity take in different students? Are there ways to make students more curious? What can faculty members do to cultivate students’ curiosity? The Center for Teaching and Learning is pleased to sponsor a year-long conversation about the curious student. By considering student curiosity in broad terms, ranging from intellectual to social, we aim to promote dialogue about the place of academic work in students’ lives on campus; highlight effective strategies for motivating students; and develop new ideas about the particular challenges and opportunities for student engagement at Trinity.
