Jon Stolk strives to design and facilitate extraordinary learning experiences. He creates project-based and interdisciplinary courses and programs that invite students to take control of their learning, grapple with complex systems, engage with each other and the world in new ways, and emerge as confident, agile, self-directed learners. Jon’s research aims to understand the student experience in different classroom settings, particularly with regard to the ways individuals express motivation and develop their own learner beliefs and identities. Jon works to translate education research to practice, and to assist others in creating innovative student experiences and driving educational change. Through workshops and consulting, Jon Stolk equips instructors with design tools and conceptual frameworks that enable them to understand their classrooms in new ways, to gain confidence in trying new approaches and deploying course prototypes, and to create their own person-centered curricula.
