Welcome to your first graded discussion topic! The purpose of the discussion forums is to exchange ideas and share our understanding of the concepts introduced in the assigned textbook chapters. Think of the forums as learning communities in which members can safely share their thinking with others for the purposes of further developing, refining, and sharpening ideas. Through collectively constructing knowledge and meaning in these forums, you will be developing your critical thinking skills.
Wherever you are in your education or your career path, you will benefit from the introspection you will undertake over the next eight (8) weeks as you learn to think more critically about the choices you make.
Let the journey begin!
