"Living into Questions" is a quote from Michael Wesch given during a keynote address at Pasadena City College (2014). The video was assigned as part of a recent module in my Learning Principles graduate course. Two videos assigned during this period made me realize 1) I am fired up about what I am learning, and 2) I want to continue getting fired up about what I learn. The best way I can think of how to live into questions is through reflection and writing--good research beginnings. Graduate school has allowed me to experiment, loosening the leash on my creativity. It's okay to play again.
I feel more alive now than I have in years. Instead of being limited by my position, for the first time in my academic career I am seeing a shift of power back to me as the student. I wonder about this potential for college students more so now than ever. What are their expectations coming into the college environment? Which role do they choose to play in their learning, cameo or lead?
I will be sharing a lot of the assignments I create over the course of my study at Kansas State University. I feel a little vulnerable sharing as some of my work is personal, but this is how I am choosing to live into questions. As a Global Campus Student in K-State's Academic Advising M.S. and certificate program, the program will take me about two years to complete. I average anywhere from 19-40 hours of study each week on top of my full-time 40 hour work week schedule. I will post as often as I can.
