Learning Innovation: Reinventing Learning
What will the university of the future look like? High school? Professional training?
TAU is spearheading research and outreach that addresses today’s most burning challenge in the field of education: How to personalize learning. Personalization takes many forms, from ensuring that every talented youngster gets fair access to university—no matter their background or geographical location; to reinvigorating the classroom experience in light of fast-paced digital developments; and to pioneering educational methods that will redefine the student experience from application to graduation.
The University's dedicated EdTech center, TAU Online, is partnering with cities across Israel—particularly in the periphery—to integrate university-level online courses into the high school curriculum. High school students can earn TAU course credits and even acceptance into the University based on their academic performance. In another program called Minducate, PhD students and post-docs combine neuroscience, psychology, computer science, education, engineering and more to develop and pilot cutting-edge teaching tools. At the Engineering Faculty, the Curiosity Lab analyzes children’s natural drive to learn and its relation to genetics, the brain and developmental disorders. And at a new, dedicated lab, the School of Education is developing advanced educational technologies that are already influencing government policies and being implemented in schools.
Social entrepreneurs who feel that educational methods are not keeping pace with today's realities should consider funding TAU programs for reinventing learning.
