INDZ - Individualized Learning


Course Descriptions

INDZ 1000 Educational Program Analysis (3)

How can we determine what we have learned through our experience? How do we persuade others that our experientially based knowledge is correct and applicable in broader contexts than our own lives? What is considered "college-level learning" and why? These are the key questions that students address in this course while they learn to identify, describe, and document their experientially based knowledge. Students demonstrate their understanding of portfolio preparation by completing a portfolio for several areas of study to be included in their entire portfolio. This course is offered on a pass/fail basis only.
