Leading Ambitious Teaching and Learning

Leading Ambitious Teaching and Learning

by Deborah Loewenberg Ball


Education is perhaps the most important of all human pursuits. Our ability to pass on knowledge, learn from mistakes, and build on innovations is what drives progress. However, our educational systems have been caught in a cycle of systemic stagnation, suffering from a lack of innovation.

Deborah Loewenberg Ball and Nell Duke are professors in the School of Education at the University of Michigan, and Liz Kolb is a clinical assistant professor. In this course, Ball, Duke, and Kolb explore the cutting edge of educational psychology, thought, and theory in an effort to reinvent our idea of teaching and learning. Educators and learners alike can use the course to optimize their own ability to teach and learn new skills and concepts.
