We are introducing students to a broad range of skills in a variety of contexts. From more traditional research papers to publicly accessible products such as Wikipedia entries, these courses help students both learn and apply skills in generating questions for inquiry, collecting and organizing evidence, and distributing their analysis in audience-specific ways. We hope not only to help students master a range of skills but also to see how those skills might be useful in a broad range of contexts.
