One of the most difficult questions to answer is, ""why are we learning this?"" The reason for this question is that teachers have always determined the specifics of the course curriculum, some going as far as creating a calendar to make sure everything is planned for each day, with little to no input from the learner.
Why not let learners determine what they learn, and in what order? Why not let them determine whether or not they as a class have mastered the material? Why not let them determine the types of assessments used? This session will focus on varying levels of ownership that learners can take on to ensure that they are engaged in a curriculum that they helped to create. Concepts such as ""overview days"" will shape a classroom where facilitators can truly facilitate, allowing learners to construct peer evaluations that hold themselves accountable to their own standards.
