Got (a) Credit?
If you're curious to learn more about major issues facing education today and work in interdisciplinary teams to design and redesign creative solutions to these major challenges and you have 1 credit to take a short minicourse, starting October 29th, register for the class at the link below! The course is designed to be a low-risk opportunity for interested students from any and every major who are simply curious to learn about education systems and education reform.
There will also be some incredible guest speakers such as current University of Michigan Provost, UofM's chief of digital learning, the President of the Ann Arbor Board of Education, and NPR specialists on rural education (you might even be on a segment of NPR!).
The course has been designed, in part, by former leaders of rEDesign and optiMize, two student groups specializing in education and innovation.
