Philosophy of Learning Design

I believe that online learning is still in its infancy. As more education is delivered online, we will continue to experiment with the best methods for maximizing learning. To meet these challenges, online education must foster social connections, equip students with information-gathering and critical-thinking skills, and provide authentic and diverse experiences. The constructivism and connectivism theories can guide us as we develop learner-centered curriculum that is grounded in the reality of our connected, rapidly changing world. By creatively combining the best of more than 100 years of educational theory, we can push the boundaries of what is possible in online education.

What any person in the world can learn, almost all persons can learn if provided with appropriate prior and current conditions of learning.
