Change MPTI Seminar
I have been talking with many MPTI students about the MPTI Seminar that we are required to attend every Wednesday from 11-2pm. Many students, including myself, have expressed concern with the content of this class. It seems as if we are being made to do arbitrary assignments, which we don't discuss in class. The video assignments that we have been assigned are also questionable, as we have an entire class on this subject alone. The lesson plan for this class is also very amorphous, leaving us wondering why we're even made to come every week besides when there is a guest speaker.
This petition is for students who feel that the curriculum of this class needs to be more structured. This petition is also for students who feel that if nothing changes, it should be made an optional attendance class. As students who are paying quite a bit in tuition to attend this program, I believe that we should have a say in this matter. Every MPTI student that I have talked to so far has expressed the same opinions of this class, so I believe it's time to take action.
Please sign this petition if you feel similarly about this issue.
