INSTRUCTOR: MICHAEL PINKSTON
GRADING FORMAT: CR/NC

 

SPRING 2005
TUESDAY, 12-12.50
LOCATION: STEV. 3046

 

At least ten meetings of the semester will be devoted to presentations by faculty and staff from all areas of the University who will focus on moments of significant personal learning.

Class meetings will provide an opportunity for students to identify their own learning style preference, and to explore the implications of adult learning theory to their academic career.

In order to receive a credit grade, class members will:

- Attend class and participate in discussion (3 absences or less).
- Write a 2-page reaction paper on each of 4 class presentations with 2 of
these papers to be turned in by mid-term.
- Write a 4-page paper to identify and describe a significant learning
moment in your own life. This paper will be due 2 weeks before finals.

"AT CERTAIN MOMENTS IN OUR LIVES, MIND SEEMS TO WHISPER TO MEMORY: "PRINT THIS." THOSE MOMENTS STAY WITH US; WHETHER AS WORDS, PERCEPTIONS, OR THE PRESENCE OF A PERSON. OCCASIONALLY WE FAIL TO REALIZE THEIR SIGNIFICANCE AT THE TIME. DRAMATIC MOMENTS THAT WE ASSUME WILL LOOM LARGE, FADE WITH THE YEARS, WHILE CRUXES ARE CONTAINED IN MOMENTS WHICH OCCUR UNHERALDED, BUT WHICH STICK AND STAY WITH US."
(R. GROSS, "THE INDEPENDENT SCHOLAR", 1981.)
