Unit 3 | Reflecting on Critical Inquiry – Fostering Meta Cognition (2 weeks)


In this Unit, you will speak to the experience of participating in the chosen learning opportunity as outlined in your individual learning plan, and on the experience of conducting a critical inquiry. You will critically reflect on, and discuss, aspects of the various technologies explored and the related critical issues that were examined and their impact on organizations and society. Reflection on the experience of conducting a critical inquiry will begin to assist you as you increasingly shift from a consumer of research to a producer of research in the second year of your program.
