The course doesn't deal specifically with higher education, but does incorporate it and adult education. URL:

Specifically, please check all that apply:

  • A classroom or academic assignment

Tell us about your work experience:

The course opens with a survey you take to determine which mode of learning suits you best, i.e. not limited to traditional heirarchical forms of education. The course incorporates the views of innovative and established practitioners and follows a model that identifies ways of learning across a spectrum/ axis from heirarchical to distributed and individual to collective. Check it out for a better description!

What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

The opening survey and the course as a whole are a fascinating and useful starting point to understand your own inclinations as a learner and educator, and position yourself to contribute to the learning sector.
