New Project Zero Course

August 27, 2013 - 12:45pm

Project Zero researchers have developed a new course at HGSE.

Entitled “Thinking & Learning in the 21st Century: Project Zero Perspectives,” this course offers students an opportunity to engage with Project Zero principal investigators and researchers around key ideas, pedagogical frameworks, and approaches to thinking and learning from PZ.  The course will be co-taught by Carrie James and Daniel Wilson, but will involve interactive sessions with other PZ investigators, including David Perkins, Howard Gardner, Tina Grotzer, Lynn Barendsen, Wendy Fischman, Liz Dawes Duraisingh, Veronica Boix-Mansilla, and Shari Tishman.

We believe that the content and questions engaged in this course are relevant to students across HGSE and other schools at Harvard. This course will give students a way to engage directly with different PZ researchers and strands of work.  For more information, visit the course iSite.
