Course Description

Many educators wonder how they can foster creativity and student-driven learning in their own students. One method has been a practice called Genius Hour, which follows the example of companies like Google, who have been know to encourage employees to devote 20% of their work time to passion projects. As such, this method of inquiry-based learning is also sometimes referred to as 20% time. Like Google employees, students are given regular allocation of time to explore topics of their own interest, a deviation from only participating in teacher-driven lessons. Personalized learning like this can intrinsically motivate students and foster the skills needed to become a lifelong learner. This course will provide practical steps to creating and implementing an inquiry-based learning approach to set students on the path to discovery.
