We live in a time where we need to ask better questions. Our world is fast-paced and ever-changing. Yesterday’s answers don’t work to answer today’s questions. The idea that memorization is equivalent to real learning is making knowledge outdated and irrelevant quicker than ever before.
Curiosity is imperative for student success–in school and after graduation–today more than ever.
Across the country, college professors are not just educating students; they’re awakening their curiosity and endowing them with the perspective they need to ask bolder questions and think more critically.
For psychology students, that can mean questioning cultural norms and conventions long accepted as status quo and thinking about themselves, and the world around them, with a new perspective.
