Overview
The d.school is a hub for innovators at Stanford University who focus on creating transformative learning experiences. The d.school will develop programs that challenge school leaders to employ "do it yourself" approaches to create greater deeper learning opportunities for students, and will explore "uncommon measures" as means to assess their progress toward their goals. This work challenges assumptions that deeper learning-focused schools must be purpose-built institutions and tests the theory of diffusion — that by making elements of deeper learning easy to "test out" using existing structures, the practices and ideas will be more likely to spread.
