The Promise & Possibility of Human-Centered Learning Environments
Over the past century, much of the modern education system has been built upon values like standardization, efficiency, quantification, mechanization, and applied scientific knowledge. Each of these continue to play an important role in modern education and society. Yet, none of them are 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, Bull draws from his study of hundreds of learning organizations and environments to offer insights on what he refers to as human-centered learning experience design. This is an invitation to teaching and learning innovation that is built upon the the foundation of traits like adventure, learner agency, compassion, experimentation, mastery, meaning, and wonder.
