Learning and Teaching Mentorship Offerings:


WE BELIEVE

Traditional learning environments are not necessarily the best places to learn or to think or to integrate big ideas into everyday life anymore. Engaged and inspiring teaching and learning can happen just about anywhere: online, through homeschooling projects, via classes offered by businesses, in facilitated groups, and so on. These configurations and settings can have a long-lasting impact on individual learners and communities of all sizes.

WE KNOW

Combining differents areas of study (such as the arts, environmental science & literature) provides vital avenues into problem-solving and collaborative work. The world of ideas need not be separate from the world of daily life. Curious, passionate life-long learners make the most dynamic teachers. Thinking deeply about the world - and one’s place in it - should start at an early age and continue throughout one's lifetime.

WE HAVE SEEN

How one single encounter between teacher and student can change the entire world. How individualized plans of study can open doors to employment and new career paths. How increasing our awareness of and exposure to the natural world helps us to feel grounded, confident, and connected. How cultivating curiosity and developing adventurous research methods can lead to impassioned mentoring of others. How groups can work together to achieve learning objectives and create social change.

We have… created curricula of advanced study for college graduates, helped artists sketch designs for an institute of creative learning, encouraged individuals to turn their entire lives into a work of art, devised methods for integrating the arts more dynamically into the humanities, and brainstormed many more experiments aimed at helping each individual learn in his, her, or their own way. We are creating online courses with compelling content to spark learning across the globe. We can’t wait to work with you!
