Concept-based curriculum (Erickson et al., 2017) and teaching for conceptual understanding (Stern et al., 2017) are approaches to designing curricula, units, lessons and assessments that help achieve deeper and transferable understanding of concepts and general principles of a theme in students, where specific subject content and facts serve as a means to achieve such deeper understanding, rather than an end in itself.
Many different knowledge processes are involved in learning. Specific teaching and learning methods can be woven into the design of a lesson and unit to build on and support these knowledge processes.
How can the Regenerative Education Community (REC)project support students to have "the imaginative range – the capacity to conceptualize and enact different ways of being in the world – to transcend the problematic ecological norms of the cultures in which they are nurtured (i.e., what would an idealized multi species “village” look like?)”.
