The instructor is expected to teach a weekly Tulane Honors Colloquium first year seminar course, which offers thought-provoking inquiries into some issue or problem or question, with course work organized around readings, discussion, and weekly writing (formal or informal). Topics can cross interdisciplinary boundaries, to appeal to students with a variety of intended majors. They might stem from issues relevant to one's field, but they need not be restricted to a specific area of research. The main purpose of the seminar is for faculty to model the kind of engagement in ideas to which we hope our students will be drawn, so what really matters is that the topic be of lively interest to the instructor. The instructor will meet weekly with the students, evaluate and respond to papers and/or assignments, organize relevant field trips, and assign midterm and final grades.
