Join us at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education this May!
This seminar will focus on new global concepts known as “Four-Dimensional Education” and teach the Why, What and How of 21st century competencies. The last major changes to curriculum took place in the late 1800’s as a response to the sudden growth in societal and human capital needs. However, today’s 21st century bears little resemblance to the 19th century so curricula needs to be deeply redesigned. You will learn about emergent and future needs, and new imperatives to teach and develop 21st century competencies in Knowledge, Skills, Character and Meta-Learning. Educators and other workshop participants will have the opportunity to dig into the ‘How’ of curriculum redesign by re-examining their own curricula and applying 4DEdu concepts.
The 4DEdu Seminar allows participants to:
- Understand the ‘why’ and ‘what’ of curriculum redesign
- Discover the 4DEdu design process
- Develop a deeper understanding of the ‘how’ of 4DEdu
- Develop strategies to incorporate 4DEdu into your work
