Learning via the COVA approach was by far one of the richest learning experiences I've ever had. With COVA, the students actively participate in creating the learning experience they will have. When I started the DLL program, like most educators, my big questions were, How do I help others to learn and, how do I learn? COVA helped to clear that all up. The approach sets the stage for deep inquiry by introducing students to Mindset. It then begins to build by having students create their own goals, based on their values and beliefs. Then it sets the students loose to begin using curated tools for building the skills necessary to fulfill their innovation program goals.
I could not be happier with my new way of gaining and sharing knowledge and building skills.
