Understanding by Design: Wilderness Philosophy

 

Synthesis!

 

This course is challenging me well beyond what I had imagined.  My investment in the ideas of the course is strong—perhaps stronger than I realized going in.  Further, with this attention I have given the course in light of trying to understand and apply Backward Design, I no longer feel qualified to teach the course! Isn’t that the paradox—the more I know, the less sure I am…which, truth be told is humility that I respect and strive for!  Rolf Peterson is my mentor in this regard!

 

I offer a revised syllabus as partial evidence that the efforts applied to this assignment are being tested in the real world of my Monday nights!
