How We Teach and Learn
One of our philosophy’s central tenants as an educational facility is that we are all teachers, and we are all learners.
Through their immersive learning environment experiences, we aim to allow students to become teachers themselves, solidifying newly-gained knowledge while simultaneously sharing skills with newer students. All of OUR team members are mindful of the wealth that is OUR students. A circular transfer of knowledge allows for the uptake of new skills, increased retention, and healthier work done by the community, through community, and for the community.
Students in our extended programs and internships are welcomed to discuss and share experiences within past educational settings. OUR students come from various educational backgrounds and bring a spectrum of beliefs and tactics for best learning practices. Through sharing both what those ideas and experiences are from the get-go, students and teachers alike can recognize how best to tailor each day for optimum growth and learning.
