How is the community incorporated into our programming?
Authentic experiences, actually being on location, participating in real work and interacting with passionate experts are much more immediate, powerful motivators for learning at this age. While not all parts of all courses can support authentic experiences, authenticity is a primary consideration in curriculum development in our programs. The location of our campus at Lansdowne becomes a hub of learning, and the city is integrated into the delivery of the curriculum.
Field trips and guest speakers are an integral part of our programming.
For our e2 students, AWOL (Authentic World of Learning) on Wednesday afternoons includes activities such as community service work; visits to museums, galleries, or historic sites; taking part in Take Our Kids to Work Day; field work; and visits to post-secondary institutions.
