WEEK 15 Wrap-up

     

    T 12 Dec

    • Wrap-up
    • Paper due 15 December by 4:00 pm in my mailbox.

    Final Paper. 5 pages. You have been challenged to integrate your education and college experience at UMass in this one course. That's why it's called an "integrative experience" course. Can it be done? Can you transcend your experience while you are having it? In other words, can the UMass System be transcended, observed, and understood sufficiently well to meet your individual needs? How much can you hack it?

    What are you talking about, Harris? Imagine yourself trying to get on Storrow Drive at 5pm on a Friday. The roads and traffic constitute a system. You are free to move within that system. At the same time, you feel the need to get free of all constraints, to go off-roading on the Bonneville Salt Flats, to drive as fast as you want in any direction. A college education requires courses (like a race course, or a course of study) that constrain you as they teach. That's like traffic and roads. A college education also requires imagination and willpower to determine your own future. That's the Bonneville Salt Flats. How do you balance those? (Consider also that driving unimpeded on the Salt Flats is great, but when more than one car try to drive at the same time, bad stuff can happen!)
