Description

Some of the most influential theories of learning come from understanding how people learn from and teach one another in settings outside the classroom. In her Education course, “Learning Within and Across Settings,” Professor Katie Headrick Taylor provides an extra-classroom environment for her students to learn these theories in context. Students make and nurture connections to community centers and other public neighborhood assets through outreach, observation, and feedback on the nature of teaching and learning in these spaces. In this course, the community/place serves as teacher, and expertise is distributed: across community members, across visible histories, and across different modes of engaging with new information. Professor Taylor demonstrates that empowering students in this way helps them develop a professional vision of learning theory that is not achievable in a traditional classroom setting, while positioning students as stewards of community-university partnerships.
