EDUC H311 THEORIES OF CHANGE IN EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS (1.0 Credit)
Division: Social Science
Domain(s): A: Meaning, Interpretation (Texts)
Drawing on students' weekly fieldwork, this seminar will explore how educational practice reflects and informs theories of change and pathways of action. Students their own theory of change; analyze the theories of change underlying their field sites; and develop skills and strategies for persisting in creative independence and interdependence with institutions. Areas of focus include teacher research and academic research, business models, network and relational models, mindfulness and listening, journalism, social media, museum studies and artistic expression. We bring these considerations to a reading of a current education reform initiative, The Baltimore Algebra Project, as a means of exploring the intersections of personal and structural growth. Prerequisite(s): Limited to students completing the minor in Educational Studies, or instructor consent
