Project description

This course combines learning by doing with reflection. Students consider their personal perspective and their experiences at camp to answer the following questions:

  • What have I learned about myself and my abilities to work/communicate with people with different life experiences?
  • How can I use what I have learned in this experience in my personal life, civic/social life and my career beyond college?
  • Has my interaction with persons with disabilities changed my perspective or given me a foundational insight into human relationships?
