“You can’t use an old map to explore a new world.” — Albert Einstein

When it comes to conversations about innovation and education, the above quote is one of our favorites. As our world continues to grow and change, old maps or old ideas can be quite useful and innovative. Yet sometimes they can be limiting and overt obstacles to our ability to reimagine or see things anew.

Welcome to Reimagining Teaching and Learning, a series of webinars, cases, and stories showcasing new ways of looking at the practice of teaching and learning.

The goal here is to explore and share a wide range of ideas and strategies tied to the ways we learn and the ways we design learning experiences. And part of this series’ intention is to challenge conventional wisdom about how we teach and learn. By doing so, we have an opportunity to rethink, reexamine, and reimagine what learning experiences can look like for a diversity of learners across their lifetime.

Each month, we will walk through topics with a variety of subject-matter experts for an in-depth analysis and conversation to be shared via webinars, blog posts, and case studies.
