Hey folks~If you are so inclined, we’d love a vote for our SXSW EDU session: Designing Academic Systems for Lifelong Learning

Current academic structures do not foster lifelong learning dispositions. For the last 19 years and through 115+ iterative design cycles, we’ve broken with past precedent to build 8 interacting systems—content, instruction, assessment, Sustainable OER, literacy, hands-on laboratory work, digital technologies, and PD—that re-engineer formal science class to support natural neural development for learners aged 13-20. This hands-on workshop explores the rule-breaking designs of all 8 systems.
