The faculty of Morningside College’s department of history and political science will present a faculty development workshop at the Ninth Annual Meeting of the Great Plains Political Science Association on Saturday, April 8, at Wayne State College in Wayne, Neb.
The workshop “Challenges and Rewards of Teaching Political Science in Cross-Listed Courses: The Morningside College Experience” will include discussion and reaction to a paper of the same title, written and submitted by Dr. Patrick Bass, professor and chair of the department. Bass will moderate the session. Other Morningside faculty members who will be discussants for the workshop include Kitty Green, instructor, and Dr. Greg Guelcher, Dr. Lillian Lopez, and Dr. Patrick McKinlay, associate professors.
Bass joined the faculty at Morningside in 1992, where he teaches European and American history, research methods, foreign policy, political thought, and United States politics. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, Calif., and a doctorate in history from Claremont Graduate University.
The Great Plains Political Science Association was created in 1997 to promote the study of political science and public affairs. The association supports academic study through annual conferences that serve as a forum for both faculty and student presentations, faculty development, and public affairs workshops.
