Learning Communities for Spring Quarter 2018

 

Learning communities are a mash up of two distinct courses, taught by two fabulous instructors, for double the credits and double the time. Students say learning communities help them to think about subjects in new and more meaningful ways. Cascadia is offering the following three learning communities during Winter Quarter.

Oh, The Places You’ll Go


Robyn Ferret and Midori Sakura    
 

GS, NS - This 10.0 credit learning community combining ENGL& 101 and GEOG 120 will examine the basic physical and environmental processes responsible for shaping geographic regions both globally and locally. It will also examine the different ways these processes might be reflected in written expressions of the natural world, and our relationship to it, across space and time. Students in this course will learn about how the physical world shapes our humanity, and will use the practice of nature writing to develop reading strategies and rhetorical skills for a range of composition purposes and audiences.

Big Bangs and Little Green Men:  Thinking Critically about the Universe and Its Origins


John VanLeer and David Shapiro 
 

H, NS – This 10.0 credit learning community, combining ASTR& 101 with PHIL& 115, is a course in how to think about weird (and not-so-weird) things; it uses the study of astronomy and related topics as a way to explore what counts as a good reason for believing something to be true. It is a course in critical thinking as applied to claims and phenomena that many people find hard to either justify or refute. A central theme of the course is the scientific method: how does science proceed in the production of knowledge and how does that method differ from other methods of producing and justifying beliefs? We will look into both scientific and theological claims about the origin of the universe; in doing so, we will compare the epistemological differences between creationist and evolutionary theory. Students can expect to come out of this class with a deeper understanding of astronomy, of what counts as a good reason for believing something to be true, and an improved ability to evaluate arguments, both in science and in their day-to-day lives.
