Our General Education Program Learning Outcomes
Learn to Learn
Students learn that as important as content knowledge is, shaping one’s future requires the development of skill in discerning, applying, analyzing, synthesizing and evaluating knowledge in diverse contexts. The educational experience at CWI prepares students for a world in which they are likely to change occupations and face unpredictable life events. We strive to develop courses and learning experiences that give students the tools to confidently thrive in a complex, information-saturated, diverse, and dynamic world.
Students learn success in today’s interconnected world requires deliberate engagement and comfort with multiple perspectives, cultures, and contexts. In navigating difference and diversity in the natural and social worlds, students connect ideas, forms of knowledge, and practices to create a richer understanding of themselves as personally and socially responsible citizens.
Students identify problems, analyze and implement solutions, and interpret and reflect on outcomes to develop skills to individually and collaboratively face challenges and create opportunities.
Students learn that ethical ideas and moral conduct may be understood as products of historical, cultural, and religious forces, as reflections of human nature, and as personally held attitudes and beliefs. In articulating their own ethical self-awareness, recognizing ethical issues, and mastering various ethical perspectives, students can evaluate, create, and live consciously according to their own moral values.
