Level Up, Elevating Student Autonomy at Campus 't Forum

Ok. I know, your reading time is precious. So let me try to just give you 7 bullets instead of a full blog.

Campus 't Forum has started  a program they call, 'Level Up', to prepare students for higher education.

Still, if you prefere reading the full blog, here it is.

In recent years, there has been a growing emphasis on student-centered learning in education. This approach puts the students at the center of the learning process, giving them more ownership and responsibility for their own learning. One school that is taking this approach to the next level is Campus 't Forum, with their new program called Level Up. 

The program, which is being led by Kim Aerts and her team,  aims to help students progress to a higher level of self-sufficiency. The Level Up team is focused on creating a more student-centered environment, where students can learn at their own pace. This is achieved through an approach to plan weekly time for Level Up (10 hours/wk). 

During Level Up hours, different subject teachers will be in the classroom together, allowing for more flexibility to meet the needs of individual students. This approach is designed to give students the opportunity to work on multiple subjects at the same time, with the ability to spend more time on subjects that they struggle with. 

The school will also be following student progress through weekly plans that students will upload after each Level Up block. This allows the school to keep track of each student's progress and guide them individually, while still keeping them autonomous. The first year of the program will have smaller class sizes, which will better allow the school to learn how to facilitate this new approach to learning. 

The school believes that by giving students more ownership and responsibility for their own learning, they will be better equipped to reach their full potential. Overall, the Level Up program at Campus 't Forum is an exciting approach to education that is focused on empowering students to take control of their own learning. With its student-centered approach and flexible class time, it is sure to have a positive impact on the students who participate.

Kim Aerts wil be giving a keynote (in dutch, translated to English) at our final event.
