This site is for communication concerning Great Basin Institute educational programs. I will offer my ideas and others can respond and offer theirs. I will also make available content that I think may be of use in our discussions about programs and a guiding philosophy that we can build to insure what is offered helps students understand how to find and sort information and use their critical thinking abilities to transform information into relevant, meaningful, and useful knowledge.
I will sometimes put up raw thought for reaction, this a request for those reading it to help me think things through or to convince me to change direction. Sometimes I will put up thought with which I will try to make other agree. We should engage in argument and we should do what we can to come to agreement.
To begin, then, how about we consider what works well in the programs currently in place and what does not work or could work better.
