The Eduventurist Project
The Eduventurist Project was my personal inquiry into the art of self-directed learning. I left formal schooling midway through my sophomore year of college and decided to interview and profile others who had stepped off of the traditional educational track and taken their learning into their own hands.
// PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS //
+ I interviewed 40+ individuals based all over the world about their learning paths and the resources, tools, and strategies they had used. I cataloged my findings via the Eduventurist blog which received 7k+ unique visitors since 2011.
+ The project was featured by organizations such as Echoing Green, The Edupunks Guide, and Make Sense.
+ I created an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds to travel to various parts of the US to interview the founders and shapers of the new educational ecosystem for entrepreneurial learning.
+ I was awarded a scholarship by a private family foundation to attend The Bold Academy accelerator program at the culmination of my research for the project. The experience helped me to contextualize and reflect on the learnings and how I would share my learnings more broadly.
+ I signed with Night Owls Press to publish the book and have plans to publish it by the end of 2016.
