IND 101 M1.2 Discussion: The Power of Telling Your Own Story
The combined experience of all of us in this classroom is staggering. Between us, we have decades (maybe centuries!) of experience in various career fields, higher education, community and civic engagement, raising families, military service, and much more. Successes, failures, and everything in between—these experiences make us who we are. In fact, your prior experience is your greatest asset as a learner. To set the stage for our academic and career futures, then, we must first recognize and appreciate our own past. Begin by viewing Dominic Colenso’s TEDx talk “The Power of Telling Your Own Story” (11:47 mins), below.
