What is your best and worst learning experience? How would you redesign your own education if you could?

The majority of our educational career is spent in formal learning environments as classrooms or lecture halls, where learners are too often positioned as passive (listening, watching, attending, consuming) rather than encouraged to engage as creators (designing, making, producing, constructing). In this course, students will actively (1) investigate different academic perspectives on educational innovation and (2) explore how to improve and redesign past or future learning experiences.

By addressing the complex connections between neuroscience, cognitive development, social change, technology and education, the course will tackle questions such as: What do we know about sleep, adolescent brains and learning in the early morning? Could shifting school days improve attendance rates? Moreover, our current educational system is designed for the ?average? student, yet is this approach grounded in empirical research? Or does recognition of individual complexity require educators to design ?to the edges? instead?

This course will introduce ground-breaking new perspectives taught by leading scholars, practitioners and thinkers in the field of education. Throughout the course students learn how such research and innovation can be applied to address personal real-world education challenges. Students will develop and present a research-based ?action-plan? to improve educational environments they encountered in their past or will encounter in their future educational path. The project should be grounded in science and naturally connect the student interests to the course themes.

This is an Honors course.
