Designing Vibrant and Purposeful Learning Communities
A consensus is emerging that education and learning need to become “everyone’s business”, and that the more connected, intertwined and interdependent societies become, the greater the opportunity to leverage our collective efforts to address learning gaps and societal challenges.
Learning ecosystems bring together diverse providers – not only schools and universities but also non-formal learning institutions, private sector organizations, and government institutions – creating new community-based learning opportunities and pathways to success, both for learners of all ages and for communities. This model, however, challenges conventional education hierarchies and decision making.
How do learning ecosystems emerge and evolve? What enables or prevents their development? How do they impact a community and to what extent can we measure that?
This is the first of a series of special focus collections that will be released as part of the WISE Learning Ecosystems Living Lab Program launched in 2020. This collection on designing vibrant and useful learning communities will seek to better understand the potential of place-based learning ecosystems in helping communities address critical education challenges and meet societal goals such as resilience and sustainability.
