12 Principles of Peer-Led, Connected, Interactive Education

Cathy Davidson writes about an upcoming course entitled, 'Mapping the Futures of Higher Education,' in this post from HASTAC, and cross posted here at CUNY's Academic Commons Futures Initiatives pages.

Here are those main principles of Connected Learning:

  • Learning is teaching.  
  • Learning is research and research is learning.  
  • Learning is institutional and socially-engaged learning changes institutions. 
  • Learning together is key—in class, in study groups, online.  
  • Learning is a formative test–not a high stakes summative one
  • Learning makes a public contribution to knowledge.  
  • Learning in public requires digital and data literacies, being aware of how, why, and by whom one’s knowledge is being used.  
  • Learning is a social activity and social responsibility.
  • Learning is interest-driven–and even fun.  
  • Learning opportunities are everywhere;
  • Learning is vocational–in a good way.  
  • Learning is about access, equity, and equality. 
  • Learning is sustainable.
