Brief excerpt from interview: It's a lot of independent work. So we aren't lecturing. It's a hybrid course. We only meet with students three times. [A]ll of their submissions are online. They gather the information and the findings from these different resources [i.e., required texts, readings, websites, student exploration] and then kind of try to analyze and put it together and really: what does that mean for them and what do they think it means for this particular culture that they happen to be focusing on for that module and then what can we do with it going forward to see some kind of critical thinking process and application process instead of just telling us this is what they believe and then what? and so what? and that's kind of what we're looking for as far as writing performances and general quality of writing . . . just be able to scholarly and intelligently convey their thoughts and opinions and their findings and synthesize it in a way where they can apply it in the care of the populations they're going to be working with.
