Learning in Depth?

Learning in Depth (LiD) is a program designed to develop and foster the joy of learning in students of all ages. Each participant receives one topic to study throughout their school career. While the basic idea is quite simple, the results of the program for students, teachers, and schools are profound.

Why LiD?

Learning in Depth (LiD) is a unique program. It is only natural that educators have lots of questions when they hear about it. Most of the questions I receive as a LiD trainer (and former LiD teacher) relate to program principles (I’ve listed a few of these below) and...

  • Teacher (30+ years, multi-age primary)
  • I.E.R.G. Research Assistant &
  • LiD Consultant (and Passionate Early Adopter)

I’ve taught elementary school for over 35 years, and in 2008 I had the privilege of completing the Imaginative Education Masters Program at Simon Fraser University. Shortly after hearing Kieran Egan present his revolutionary idea, a program he called “Learning in Depth” (LiD), I committed to the program. (Read about my journey here…) 

As an I.E.R.G Research Assistant and LiD Trainer, I’ve had the immense good fortune to work with the highly qualified and passionate members of I.E.R.G., as well as many interested local and foreign educators – participating in presentations with visiting educators from Canada, USA, Australia, Chile, Mexico and Korea.

As an LiD Consultant
I’ve spent the past two years assisting teachers in their implementation and development of LiD programs – in single classes, multiple classes, and schoolwide.
