Academic and Hands-On Experiences
Students enjoy the natural balance between academics and hands-on experiences. They are enrolled in coursework involving internship (externship) or lab, in inquiry projects, and in mentoring programs. Several types of teaching methods will be used to address the variety of adult learning needs within the class. An apprenticeship model is emphasized. Collaborative, transformational and critical thinking methods are interwoven through lectures, reflection, discussion, research, and hands-on activities.
