Healthcare Org 1, 1.06 (R) [FUN] Welcome and Find Your Seat

Every course - every learning event - begins by "finding your seat". It begins by finding the location best suited for you to study and learn the course/event material. In today's world, especially in an online course, that "seat" can be in your kitchen, a coffee shop, on public transportation ... anywhere there is an internet connection. There is something nice, however, about finding a seat - even if only in your mind's eye - in a library, especially one of the iconic libraries. Such iconic libraries are architecturally stunning and provide a wonderful environment in which to ponder, consider, and learn. A few are shown below. Feel free to "take a seat" - any seat - in your mind's eye in one of them before moving on to the next section Welcome and Course Overview. ________________________________________________________________________________________ Library of Congress (founded in 1800) especially the Main Reading Room
