HONR 22000 - Community Of Inquiry


Credit Hours: 2.00.  This course is for new members of the Honors College community, who entered as continuing Purdue students or transferred to Purdue. It, being your first or one of your first courses in the Honors College, is designed to help you hone some of the fundamental learning outcomes of an honors education: interdisciplinary thinking, critical thinking, problem solving, research thinking, collaboration, and global awareness. You will also engage with the pillars of the Honors College and develop community within the Honors College. To accomplish these objectives, the course is simultaneously project-based and experiential. You will work in multi-disciplinary teams on applied-research that emphasizes critical and multi-dimensional thinking about real-world problems. Through project-based learning, you will move your skills beyond identifying and understanding a problem to identifying and formulating solutions to that problem. The problem addressed in the course is local or global in scope and has social, economic, political, and/or environmental implications for our local and/or global community as well as begs a multi-disciplinary, innovative solution. Continuing in the vein of experiential learning and of building your honors ethos, you will attend events (some as a class, others individually) and participate in programs in the Honors College and across campus that embody the Honors College’s pillars: Community and Global Engagement, Leadership, Research, and Interdisciplinary Academics. You will curate a schedule of events that take place during the semester and reflect on these experiences. Permission of department required.Credits: 2.00
