4MN2 is an experiential learning course that draws on three groups of students: Level-IV Arts & Science students who were on exchange (or an equivalent experience) last year (2018-19), Level-III Arts & Science students preparing to study abroad in 2019-20 Winter term, and international students here at McMaster on exchange in Fall 2019.
This two-unit course, which brings together Arts & Science students and international exchange students, prompts critical reflection on the experience of studying in unfamiliar terrain and challenges students to imagine ways of integrating their experiential learning into their lives. Ultimately, the course aims to help students develop an ongoing practice of reflective, lifelong learning.
The course is evaluated on a Pass/Fail basis.
Instructors: Dr. Jean Wilson and Prof. Hartley Jafine
Term: 1 (Fall 2019)
