Course description

In this course, students identify issues in educational or other professional settings on which to focus their critical and creative thinking skills. Each student works through the different stages of research and action -- from defining a manageable project to communicating findings and plans for further work. The classes run as workshops, in which students are introduced to and then practice using tools for research, writing, communicating, and supporting the work of others.
