Week 11: Response-Ability

| 74 Comments | 0 TrackBacks
In summary, this video poses the question, can one person really make a difference? I feel that many believe that they CANNOT make a difference, that they are too small or insignificant when compared to the grand "problems" that our Earth is facing.  But in reality there is a lot you can do to help!  Small things can add up in big ways, and the students involved in this video said they left with overall good feelings and a feeling of empowerment.  The question is, did this action make a difference? How so?  Are there unseen effects beyond the immediate as well?

Week 6: Bugs!

| 73 Comments | 0 TrackBacks
Welcome to Week 6 of BiSci! This week we have challenged our conditioned beliefs about insects. Section 34 spent about 15 minutes interacting with the Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches that visited Monday's lecture. The video shows it all....fear, disgust,  and ultimately, the HUGE steps students are taking in order to step outside their conditioned beliefs/attitudes towards bugs. 

The question for this week's reflection is: When was the last time you touched a bug? Describe the experience & reflect on your beliefs about and attitudes towards bugs.

Week 5: Trees

| 85 Comments | 0 TrackBacks
When asked about our relationships with trees many of us were at a loss. Prior to this week, several of us had never even been asked to contemplate that relationship. We were stumped. Therefore, as section 29 of BiSci3, we would like to extend to you the opportunity to reflect upon your own personal relationship with trees. Through our own reflections and pictures of what we find to be remarkable trees, we created this video to offer as a gift to the BiSci community. What can you share to continue our conversation?
