Mythless Learning Design

Clark Quinn

If I’m going to rail against myths in learning, it makes sense to be clear about what learning design without myths looks like. Let me lay out a little of what mythless learning design is, or should be. Learning with myths manifests in many ways. Redundant development to accommodate learning styles, or generations.

Even combining the efforts of civil society, governments, and markets will not be enough to address our greatest challenges — climate change and environmental degradation. These have been my assumptions to date.
