WUaS Idea- and Academic Resources[edit]


WUaS plans to hire graduate student instructors from great universities who may be becoming professors, to teach overachieving, matriculated, WUaS students in sections in G+ group video Hangouts, for example, engaging the Conference Method (, in conjunction MIT OCW faculty in video (, and to do grading at WUaS as part of a conversation in learning. Such courses may engage other forms of grading, but that will partly be up to the head graduate student instructor in any given course.

"The key principles used in designing DragonBox are: Students learn more when they are engaged. The most important factor to learning is feedback. Feedback should be immediate to be effective. To feel mastery is key to staying motivated. Students should be presented with challenges that match their level of mastery. Students should be assessed in a formative, non-intrusive way. A safe environment is the key to learning. Peer learning is very effective. Discovery or experiential learning is much more effective than instructional-based teaching. Students learn differently and at different paces. The language we use to teach mathematics is a barrier to understanding." (
