Making education affordable and transformative

We recently redesigned our introduction to cultural anthropology course using the ANTH101 course from award-winning professor Michael Wesch from Kansas State University. The premise of the course is that students cannot think your way into a new way of living; they have to live your way into a new way of thinking. This course teaches students to try new things, make connections, and ask new questions about themselves and the world they live in. It takes them out of the classroom and from behind the computer into the real world. To introduce students at Ohio State to the course, we interviewed students about their experiences in 2202. Here are our first videos: (1) Anthropology 2202: Making Education Affordable and Transformative; (2) Anthropology 2202: Advice from Students; and (3)  Anthropology 2202: Lessons for Life.
