Quest I: First Day Creative Process Example

"Creative and critical thinking" is one of our UW Oshkosh "Essential Learning Outcomes" also highly valued by employers. In the early weeks of college first-year students are learning so much, including words we might assume they know - like "syllabus." Our creative and committed Quest I instructors are assisting students with the transition to college and their introduction to various Essential Learning Outcomes through disciplinary content.

Please click on the image below to hear from a Quest I instructor and a few of his students as they reflect on a creative process designed to reinforce the concept and content of the college course syllabus...through performance!
