Last semester in my intro to IDS class, we talked about what a PLN is. A PLN is a personal learning network and my current PLN is my newly created twitter account. Before IDS, I did not have a twitter and did not bother thinking it was going to be drama filled like a lot of social media sites. What I realized what that my Twitter account gave me a lot of outside resources and helped me with ideas for my applied project and research article.
Bonnie Toomey has really boosted my confidence with her consistent retweets and positive & constructive criticism on my blog posts. She has been a great professor for IDS senior seminar and has become a huge role in my PLN.
On April 3rd I decided to do research article on how being outside can help in reducing stress. It ended up being a great research assignment in which I learned a lot and hope to teach my viewers a little something as well!
This was my tweet about viewing my applied project post and how college students are quite possibly the most stressed generation there is. Check it out if you want to read more.
Beyond grateful to be introduced into this program. IDS saved me and I am truly happy with how the remainder of my college experience has gone.
A friendly reminder to myself…be human. Interdisciplinary studies is about being human. Life is created interdisciplinary and we shouldn’t have to focus on one topic for 4 years of schooling. Knowledge comes from multiple disciplines and this major helped me realize that I needed to be more human.
