Global Programs as Innovation Labs for Your School

A Mastery-Learning Example

Saturday, April 6, 2019
9:00 - 10:00 A.M. 

As schools continue to define the role of global programs in their educational offerings, one opportunity that is often overlooked is global programs’ role as a potential laboratory for curricular design. Working with students outside of the physical space of the school can provide the room needed to innovate.

In this session, participants will explore a framework for designing global programs that provides opportunities for curricular design especially in the areas of experiential education and mastery learning. Presenters will share examples of SYA’s own move toward mastery learning and the opportunities and pitfalls associated with using your global programs as a lab.

Head of Schools and Programs Aric J. Visser and SYA Spain Faculty Member Álvaro Ávila de la Torre
