Participant Reflections

“Before taking part in this seminar, I was a passive participant in my education and in my career. I can see now that one can be an active agent of change in every aspect of life. Through developing our ability to critically analyse, research, consult, and take part we can make informed decisions, guided not just by faith but also by reason.”

“I feel empowered to become more conscious of the assumptions and processes that underly my degree. I feel empowered to consciously investigate what I learn with a more observant eye. Also, I think I will look into ways that I can shape my education path so as to ensure that I am putting into practice what I learn.”
