The stories students share regarding their learning progress constantly amazes me. Some span over many years and across a number of fields. Some remain within a field with the intent to search deeper. Some are in the early stages, starting out on an enquiry process in order to acquire or deepen knowledge and or to enhance skills.
As for students at the college, so to is the situation for our lecturers. There is a diverse range of backgrounds and fields represented, all culminating in a rich offering, of again, knowledge and skills. In addition to the desired knowledge and skills, within a course of study, there is generally, a foundation of values or foundational principles upon which the learning content sits.
