When high school students come to college, they want to find the right answer to questions they have, according to research.
But sometimes there’s no right answer. Other times there’s more than one.
So GRU faculty got together and created a course to help young college students challenge this way of thinking.
“Asking questions is really the fundamental process,” said Elizabeth Huggins, director of first and second year experience for the Office of Academic and Faculty Affairs.
That is why Inquiry 1000 was created.
The one-credit class teaches students to become active learners by helping them develop research and critical thinking skills.
“We are a research-based organization, and we want to start with some foundational research courses,” Huggins said. “It’s all research but done in a fun way.”
Inquiry 1000 fulfills the Core Course requirement in Area B.
