Experience in Foundations courses
 

I can't imagine where my development as an educator and a scholar would be without my foundations courses. They have been an integral element of my PhD training. Retaining the "foundations" designator helps establish the purpose of these courses: to understand the philosophical and foundational elements of educational practice and research. Becoming a thoughtful agent of change requires matriculation in these courses. They are integral to the training of critically thinking educational practitioners and researchers.
