What is

Deeper learning

Deeper learning is an academic philosophy that places an emphasis on providing learners with robust skills and education to better ready students for a workforce where critical thinking skills are increasingly necessary. Deeper learning utilizes active learning principles and education technology to teach skills like the importance of mastering specific content, learning to effectively communicate both orally and in writing, boosting problem solving and critical thinking skills, learning to collaborate with others and maintaining an academic frame of mind.

Deeper learning refers to a collection of expected learning outcomes students should obtain ahead of entering the job market. Unlike traditional learning environments, which emphasize lecturing and information memorization, deeper learning takes place in a collaborative environment.
