For College Success, Academic Learning, and Freshman Seminar courses.

Thousands of years ago, Galileo reportedly asserted, “You cannot teach a man anything.  You can only help him discover it within himself.”  With a focus on project-based learning, Project College Success motivates students to explore student success topics and to discover how they can apply these skills to their college experience.

Experience shows that project-based learning actively engages and inspires students. Each ‘project’ introduces an authentic topic relevant to student success and then poses a question which directs student exploration. Through this guided inquiry, students work individually or in groups to discover and explore answers. Students can discuss, analyze, and evaluate various aspects of a current project topic. This approach sparks classroom dynamics, immerses students in diverse discussions, and prepares them for the workplace by promoting engagement and accelerated success through a learner-centered focus to achieve learning outcomes.
