TERRAIN: Covering New Ground
Traditional Learning vs. Open Learning
The traditional learning model of education — rooted in hierarchy and lecture-based teaching — is being challenged by an open and dynamic model that fosters two-way communication. However, higher education has been slow to relinquish its stringent labels and boundaries in favor of the new cultural norms around democratization.
The TERRAIN Solution:
TERRAIN’s Expeditionary Learning model is collaborative, dynamic and interdisciplinary, teaching the skills that are at the center of a liberal arts curriculum – the capacity to think critically, communicate clearly, and solve problems. In addition, external experts are part of the learning experience, making the education students receive more relevant and dynamic.
