Over the past two semesters, you have engaged in "integrative learning." You have been asked to include knowledge gained from multiple courses, over the entire semester(s), and across the campus and Islander community at large. Throughout, we've asked you to connect previous knowledge to concepts, ideals, and methodologies presented to you in your current classes. As such, integrative learning prompts you to build upon and pull together your entire experience both inside and outside of the classroom.

1) What assignments (2) do you feel fostered integrative connections and understanding the most?

  • Please be specific in your response, indicating how and why you feel these assignments developed your capabilities to pull knowledge from multiple courses.
