Welcome to the very beginning of this learning journey.
This module will guide you in doing the following to be ready to engage successfully.
This course takes you on a transformative journey to develop the mindsets of an ethical, future-focused leader of learning. This is also a transdisciplinary mindset, agile, reflexive, and able to explore from multiple perspectives, cross disciplinary boundaries, and work connectively to innovate. We need these mindsets to address “wicked problems” in the world – complex problems that continuously emerge even as we address them. Some of the most “wicked” – are in the enterprise of education and my goal is to work with you to understand the landscape of education, how it is shifting, and how we can become teacher-leaders and scholars who can make a difference to future generations. For a detailed course description and information on assignments, expectations, schedule, policies, and resources, please see the Syllabus.
