ADC 201 Discovery and Practice of Academic Learning (Pass/Fail)
Mandatory workshop that informs and prepares students to maintain their course of study in P.A.C.E. while teaching them how to become successful adult learners. Students are introduced to the Houghton campus and its services while learning the value of a Christian liberal arts education. Key factors include the importance of critical thinking and insight into adult learning theories. Emphasis will be placed on self-directed learning as it relates to the program and beyond. Students also learn how to avoid plagiarism by utilizing database research methods and APA citation sources. Opportunities for reflection, based on completion of Adult Development and content of the workshop, lead to a purpose statement and goal-setting exercise that integrates with the Portfolio process.
