Evolving Education

By Katie Martin

In Evolving Education, Dr. Katie Martin advocates for a much-needed shift to a learner-centered teaching model. Learner-centered education creates purposeful, personalized, authentic, and competency-based experiences that help students develop skills that empower them to learn, grow, and solve problems that matter to them and others. This book offers a deep dive into how educators can harness new technologies, learning sciences, and pedagogy that center learners and learning.
