An Eye-Opening Experience

The Learning Ecosystems facilitated course was quite an eye-opener to me, it brought to the forefront the issues I took for granted. I have become more confident at protecting the rights of learners and also at growing new and fresh ideas that will change the education landscape in Kenya and in Africa.

A Progressive and Holistic Approach

When I joined the Learning Ecosystems course, I wished more educators from my context took the course. When I completed this course, I wished ALL educators in the world took this course! First attending to the heart, then exercising the mind and finally engaging the will power, this course mirrors progressive co-constructing of a healthy learning ecosystem in such a rewarding way that any educator would enjoy and benefit from. It’s a true gem!

Fanny is such a resourceful instructor, warm, approachable and very professional. Having a scholar approach and demonstrating wittiness, she shows up as very knowledgeable and is respected by all course participants. I am so happy and honored to have worked with her. Her coursework is like a comprehensive rich portfolio of everything that a progressive and holistic educator would ever need. A number of examples, prompts, templates, examples to reflect on, theory-based conceptual frameworks, models, stems, very effective  compare and contrast infographics, references, videos, links to outside resources and much much more! 

If you are a courageous educator who is all about growth and empowering their students, you are taking this course with the next cohort! Good luck!
