Innovative Pedagogies
What can teaching and learning look like when we go beyond the limits of our disciplines, our calendars, our classrooms? IdeaLab supports pedagogical experiments that respond to the challenges of the present, imagining ways teaching can be more flexible, more timely, create connections. Our collaborators innovate within the framework of existing classes and explore how the paradigm of the course might itself be remade.
