How might we setup learning processes co-designed and co-taught by students/learners ?

Setup flipped classes where adults are just there to facilitate and ensure that the learning process is robust enough

Philippe, I love your idea and have been teaching my class in a similar way for the past two years. I've submitted a proposal, Your-Story of the United States, and would appreciate your take. Fully realized, I'm envisioning the course co-taught by three teachers across institutions in an effort to bridge the political/cultural divide. If you are interested, I'm looking for conspirators interested in collaborating. If you're interested, I've included a link to a working document below and would appreciate any suggestions or insights you might have to offer.

Hey Philippe Drouillon - I love the idea of having classrooms run more by students as a way for teachers to develop empathy for their students. Can you share more? How do you see this as a tool / pathway for developing understanding? What are some ways you'd guide a teacher to do this? Great idea! Thanks for diving in.

P.S. are you a teacher? If so - where are you coming from? It's great to have you in our community.

Tell us more! How might this increase empathy? Is it through teachers understanding the role of learner differently? And if you can, add a photo to go with your post so that people will want to click on it to find out more....
