Students are expected to take responsibility for their own learning by openly sharing your work and asking for feedback, relating concepts and skills to your real world experiences, gathering and synthesizing information from a variety of sources, making us aware of your individual learning needs.

The field school is designed to encourage the understanding and appreciation of content by facilitating critical thinking and transmedia dialogue. Emphasis is placed on thought rather than memorization. Participation in the field school will encourage the critical understanding of a topic and the controversies associated with it; generating multiple responses and perspectives on issues of common concern; discovery; and promoting provocative discussion through multi-media.
