The Q Center is in the process of developing CHID Focus Group offerings for Winter and Spring 2024.
What is a CHID Focus Group?
CHID Focus Groups are 2-credit classes offered under the course number CHID 496 and are graded on a credit/no credit basis. Unlike many other classes, which use an education framework of instruction by an expert (generally a professor), Focus Groups rely on peer learning within a facilitated, discussion-based classroom. They allow students with common interests to create a space to discuss topics which may not be covered elsewhere in the UW undergraduate curricula.
Supervised and advised by Q Center professional staff, our ECO Interns peer-facilitate one of these classes each quarter.
What we need now:
We want to hear from YOU, specifically undergraduate and grad students!
– What topics/themes related to LGBTQ experience are of interest?
– What instructional style(s) and format works best for you?
– What concepts or ideas do you not quite get time or space to explore in other classes?
Please share your thoughts with us!
