The Promise and Possibility of Human-Centered Learning Environments
Over the past century, much of the modern educational system has been built on values like standardization, efficiency, quantification, mechanization, and applied scientific knowledge. Each of these continues to play an important role in modern education and society, yet none is capable of drawing learners into meaning-rich, authentic, engaging, and transformative learning experiences. For that, we must learn from the best of ancient knowledge and modern research. With this in mind, Dr. Bull draws from his study of hundreds of learning organizations and environments to offer insight on what he calls "human-centered learning-experience design." This is an invitation to innovations in teaching and learning, built on traits like adventure, learner agency, compassion, experimentation, mastery, meaning, and wonder.
