Participation is critical. Tours of various learning spaces are a key experience in the course. Students are expected to speak and listen actively in class; build on the ideas of others; challenge their own thinking and that of others; and seek to make connections between concepts in class and to outside experiences. Students will be asked to think what they observe in a variety of settings, and to generate questions; “stupid” questions are encouraged. All students will be expected to be able to engage their classmates’ questions.
