“The growth of any craft depends on shared practice and honest dialogue among the people who do it. We grow by private trial and error, to be sure- but our willingness to try, and fail, as individuals is severely limited when we are not supported by a community that encourages such risks.” Parker Palmer, The Courage to Teach, Jossey-Bass, 1998 (p.144).
3 key learning principles
3 Key Learning Principles
  • Prior Knowledge: learners construct new knowledge based on what they already know (or don’t know)
  • Deep Foundational Knowledge: Learners need a deep knowledge base and conceptual frameworks
  • Metacognition: Learners must identify learning goals and monitor their progress toward them.
