    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The TSEM course I took in particular was on technology and how it is evolving. I found the course to be very interesting because it brings to light where we our on our knowledge of technology and shows students how we can use these technologies, as well as the path we our headed as they develop.

    Course highlights:

    I found the internet of medicines and other medical technology very interesting. It was a peculiar subject, but seeing how much work goes into 3D printing and such, and how it helps improve our quality of life is refreshing and reassuring.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read and and do group work with one another. If you are interested in the subject it is a very good course to take, especially if you need to fill your core classes.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would greatly recommend this course. This course was required, but is extremely beneficial to the students who are to take it. After taking this course you can expect to have greater knowledge of technology and how great the impact of it is in society, how to construct a formal persuasive academic paper using scholarly articles, and have a greater understanding of the requirements Towson University expects for the work quality of the students.

    Course highlights:

    This course was almost parallel to taking another English course. Writing and critical thinking were two main concepts of this course. Focusing on technology and its influence in society was a main factor of the course as well. The course consisted of writing an in depth paper on a certain field of technology. This paper was extremely beneficial in helping improving writing skills, creating a solid thesis, and other writing skills which can benefit students in other courses. This course also focused on collaborative learning as it entailed multiple group projects which required several inputs from students. The course text provided students background knowledge of technology influencing society in many different aspects, which helped the class understand its relevance in every day life.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students attending this class are expected to come prepared with the reading already done. The professor expects the students to participate in an active group discussion that the professor will facilitate. Students must have background knowledge to be able to productively participate in collaborative learning in the classroom. Students should not fall behind on the reading as they will benefit the quality of discussions. The final paper is worth a large part of the grade for the class. Encouraged by the professor, students should not only ask the professor for help, but go to the writing center to edit papers, which would also credit 5 points extra onto the final paper grade. It is important to start the paper early to be able to use all of the resources available to help write the best possible paper.
