Ways of Knowing

A college course begins with reviewing the syllabus for the course, I’ve linked mine here.

My syllabus has several roles

  1. Contract—here’s what you can expect of me, here’s what I expect from you.
  2. Compass—here’s where we are heading and in what timeframe.
  3. Culture—here’s how I’m generally going to comport myself with you.

Course Description

In this course you will learn about the different ways that people from a variety of cultures and historical contexts have responded to perennial problems and how those responses have sculpted our contemporary situation.
