SFU Royal Society of Canada Seminar Series: "Learning in Depth: A simple innovation that can transform education"

Thursday, March 21, 2013
11:30 - 12:30

Dr. Kieran Egan
Faculty of Education, Simon Fraser University


The Learning in Depth (LiD) program was introduced into a couple of local schools in 2009. Since then it has spread to many schools around the world, and also to colleges and universities. The program is simple to implement and somewhat radical and is designed to ensure that all students will become expert on some limited area of knowledge to a degree that has not been a part of any educational program in the past. The talk will describe the program, discuss potential problems with it and potential solutions to those problems, and invite participants to contribute to it, or to its demise.
