What future for education?

Through this course you will start to critically examine your own ideas about education, teaching and learning. The critique will be developed through engagement with theories and ideas developed through educational research. You will be encouraged to use these ideas to challenge or support your own ideas about education. Each week we will focus on one key question, using video lectures, key readings and challenges to explore some commonplace notions about education. With the guidance of the course team, you will be asked to use these ideas to critically reflect on your own understandings and experience. By the end of the course, you will have developed a personal response to the main question: what is your preferred future for education?

future of education in 3 reviews

Really liked and enjoyed the how the course is organized and how the different topics help you shape your own idea about what's the future of education.

Insightful lectures every week, but the assignments' grading criteria is a little too simplistic and does not push students to really think further about the future of education.

thought provoking in 3 reviews

It wasn't exactly swinging from the chandeliers, but It was very thought provoking as a general look at education.

Most informative and thought provoking particularly as I teach across two educational systems.

my only in 3 reviews

My only recommendation would be to lose the padlet - it seems trivial compared to the rest of the course functions.

(My only regret is that my execution of the final project flagged a bit, mostly because I was fatigued and had many other obligations around the time of the "Ted Talk" project deadline.)
