COLS 194 - You at UM: Curiosity and Life Design Workshop
(R-6) Offered autumn and spring. A review and discussion of current research. Topics vary. This First-Year Experience workshop teaches the research-based skills and mindsets of Design Thinking (innovative problem-solving strategies) and how to apply this toolkit to search for clearer academic, personal, and career goals. In addition to addressing persistent questions regarding why are you here, who/what do you want to be, and where are you going, students will develop failure resilient and exploratory mindsets. This First-Year Experience workshop will walk students through group-based activities facilitated by caring instructors and peer educators that combine engaging readings, in-class discussion, reflective exercises, and out-of-class activities and interviews.
