The Enquiring Mind gives students a solid foundation in skills that will be crucial to both their university studies and working lives, including critical thinking, creative problem-solving, collaboration, resilience, research, and communication. The course develops these skills through an exploration of issues related to social and cultural change in the recent past and into the future. Students will work in teams to share ideas and perspectives throughout the course. In their individual work, students will have considerable choice over the specific topics they choose to explore, how they access information, and how they present their findings. This allows students to tailor their Enquiring Mind experience to their own strengths and interests. In the process, students will build academic literacies relevant to their areas of study, giving them the confidence to fully engage in their chosen disciplinary fields.
