IDST 101 - Introduction to Communities of Practice

Credit Hours: 3
This online course introduces students to tools and resources available to them that promote proactive engagement in the learning process.  One mechanism to support life-long learning, curiosity, and the acquisition and sharing of knowledge is through membership in a community of practice.  This idea will be a central tenet to this course, as well as their remaining college experience.  Through research, guided discussions, and journaling exercises, students will explore their personal goals and aspirations in order to develop personal mission statements.  In addition, students will consider their potential impact through achievement of these goals.  This course will utilize a variety of learning strategies, including but not limited to assigned readings, video blogging, lectures, research and writing, group discussions, and group activities.
