Always Do the Reading
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This was a class discussing the importance of learning new perspectives, and development of a guiding question that will influence and provide students structure to guide their next four years at the university. The highlight of inquiry based learning structured the class to expand the reaches of intellectual thought and processes students initially had and had potential to develop. It was honestly one of my favorite classes in the fall because it allowed me to think differently and connect with other topics and ideas. I am now able to see how science and art, or humanities and mathematics are indirectly connected with one another. It allowed me to grow as a student and as a citizen in society.
I established my guiding question as “How can courage benefit someone into becoming more self-aware of the environment around them?” Using this question I was able explore the different perspectives explored in class and in my poster presentation. Does a community or environment affect how courageous a person is? For example, coming from a more urban area than other people I have met here at Quinnipiac it affects the way I see diversity and the ability to stand out from a crowd. Striving to make a change, I explored the idea of whether or not I would become more recognized in an area where the slightest impact on society can shape an entire community and deem me courageous.

Advice for students:
Be open, and take assignments seriously. Although the class may seem easy, it can become very difficult if you aren't open to the concepts being thought in class. Listen, infer, and enjoy the class because this new style of learning will be exposed in multiple classes through out your time at the university. It will appear in capstone classes, English classes, public speaking, and much more.
