EDUC 280- Introduction to Education, Organizations and Communities (2) is a fantastic introductory course for students considering education. It explores questions such as: What is learning, and where do we learn? How are adolescents developmentally different from children? How does the community, policy and cultural context influence educational outcomes? What are the challenges for establishing equity in education? What are effective and equitable ways of engaging with the community?
EDUC 370- Learning Within and Across Settings (5) unpacks the multi-dimensional and bi-directional manner in which we learn (& teach!). What IS learning and WHERE do we learn? This course explores how learning happens outside the classroom, in community centers, performance venues, workplaces, hobbyist groups, museums, and more. Does changing the learning setting change the way we "teach"? It will also challenge students to investigate a wider variety of learning goals and participants.
