What do we want our learners to become?

  • Agents of their own learning.
  • Integrative thinkers and problem-solvers.
  • Empowered communicators and leaders.
  • Model-based reasoners.
  • Resilient experimenters.
What experiences make that becoming happen?
  • Tackle ill-structured, open-ended complex problems with others.
  • Search for, find, and share relevant, reliable and up-to-date data with team members.
  • Blend disciplinary concepts, methods, representations toward solving problems.
  • Create, share, debate, and defend models (graphical, diagrammatic, mathematical).
  • Try, fail, and recover.
