ED-D101 is a living research laboratory. You will research yourself to figure out how to improve, regulate, and optimize your learning. You will also be asked to share your learning (data) for research about student learning. By participating in informal and formal research about learning, you will be fulfilling the University of Victoria’s strategic plan and sharing your learning processes and insights with future ED-D101 students, researchers, and university instructors who strive to help students succeed at university.
