LAR 101 - Inquiry Seminar: Learning the Art of Inquiry (3)

 A course designed to introduce students to college-level writing, discussion, critical thinking, and critical reading. Faculty will choose a topic for each section in order to help students learn information research skills, to work collaboratively, and to gain an appreciation for interdisciplinary study and multiple perspectives.  Each year, the instructors identify a guiding question, with related common student readings and experiences. Students will begin to engage in ongoing reflection about their educational experience. 

Students will work to:

  • engage in discovery;
  • gather and evaluate facts and assumptions;
  • support conclusions with relevant evidence; and
  • practice effective communication.
