Online Learning Community Participant Who Participates In An Unstructured Manners Is Known
Young adults who are curious about how to participate in an unstructured manners class might be wondering what to expect. This has been a problem with many courses, particularly those offered online. Learning’s Redefined is offering a Manners Field Trip that is designed to help participants learn about campus life, what it means to be a woman, and learn how to interact respectfully with other members of the class. There are currently 42 subjects that are available as field trips in the class, which vary in topics from drinking with friends, dating and relationships, safety, LGBTQ issues, and unstructured manners. “That is one of the most important conversations we want to have this course in,” said Emily Camper, the founder of Young Adult Monologues.
The field trip is scheduled for this Thursday at the Counseling Center Building located on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Young Adult Monologues will also be discussing how they received funding from The Campus Food Bank for the Teen Drop-in program. “We chose them because of their ability to fight hunger,” said Lola Carrillo, executive director of Youth Direct. In the field trip’s curriculum there are a variety of sites that are discussed by the group. Topics include local restaurants, freshman dorms, the campus cemetery, and a casting call for Streetwise, a theater company who perform alternative plays by the U.S. president.
