The 2013 Community of Scholars Day, which focused on “The Art of Research,” was an opportunity for all members of the Lesley community to participate in and focus attention on scholarship in various stages of development. All events were held in University Hall on Wednesday, March 27, and a special class schedule was implemented in observance of the annual event.
Wide-ranging sessions encompassed topics such as a discussion of Study Abroad at Lesley, children’s language and literacy development through storytelling, a new interdisciplinary seminar for first-year students called “Courage, Risk, and Uncertainty,” and a demonstration of clowning techniques to connect with other human beings.
“This day truly embodied a spirit of collaboration and appreciation of research on a grand scale,” said Dean of Faculty Lisa Fiore. “From our student volunteers to our design team, every element of the day reflected the community engagement that Lesley has come to look forward to every year.”
The day concluded with a reception and a musical exploration of research and interpretation, led by faculty and members of The Nature of Inquiry Class.
