Who are we as learners? How does learning involve
our physical, thinking, feeling, social and cultural selves? In this
program we will actively explore what biology, developmental psychology,
education and the politics of identity can contribute to our understanding
of what learning looks like and requires. We will also actively use
the program as a lab to observe our individual learning processes and
to experiment with different ways to engage learning.
The program will involve reading, writing, visual representation,
public presentation, collaborative group work and what ever other tools
we discover that we need to fully understand what we set out to learn.
This program will be useful to folks who are thinking
about teaching as a profession. It will also be a very useful program
for folks who are wondering about how to nurture and maximize their
learning as students. And of course, it will be useful to any parent
or future parent who wants to support, bring joy and nurture a sense
of empowerment to their child’s experience of learning.
