“When I first proposed the course, I thought I would get a more negative response – ‘Oh, it’s fluffy’ -- and I still worry about some of my colleagues having that attitude,” he says. “But my chair and other people have been supportive, interested.”

Mainly, though, it should suggest something else -- something that might be more relevant to the student’s qualifications.
