Liberal Education Pathway

What do we mean by a liberal education pathway?

A liberal education is distinguished by how students learn, and by the learning outcomes they achieve. Students must enjoy their learning lives, but additionally they must also understand how the gains they make are related to the curricula, programs, and the educational experience as a whole. Students must also be able to describe their accomplishments and growth in ways that go beyond the transcript and the résumé, and speak to values and principles. Their work is expected to stand as evidence of their intellectual and personal development and potential.

Who is Beyond 8 for?

Beyond 8 is for active learners. It is for those who understand that getting to a special place in the future requires doing things differently in the present. It is particularly well suited for aspiring entrepreneurs, journalists and designers, scientists, mathematicians, sportspersons, musicians, artists, gamers, and coders.

How do we integrate learning across the curriculum and co-curriculum?

Throughout their learning, students must be able to see logical and transparent connections within the curriculum, between the curriculum and co-curriculum, and with larger communities

  • Civic engagements related to the content of the curriculum
  • Ethical reasoning, and role-play to thoughtfully sift through different viewpoint
  • Application of common principles in diverse setting
  • Engagement with complex, interdependent systems
  • Emphasis on critical thinking and creative thinking
  • Modules that help them acquire a broad set of skills
  • Community service and internships where ideas and theories are validated

How do we integrate academic and experiential learning?

Knowledge of one kind is strongly available in academia, but in many fields this must be complemented by applied learning. Professionals in different fields can impart practical nuances that are often missed in academic programs. Tight integration with practice also ensures that curricula for academic programs remain up-to-date with developments in rapidly changing fields

  • Opportunities to apply theory to practice in projects
  • Exercises that bring experience from practice into academic discussions
  • Exposure to the experiences of professionals in diverse disciplines
  • In-situ learning in non-academic settings and facilities
  • Thought-exercises that encourage them to imagine the future of each discipline

How do we know that the learning outcomes for work, citizenship and life are being achieved?

Many different values contribute to a liberal education, and the learning outcomes we seek for our students lies in the integration of these. We help students first understand the importance and measure of these values, and then periodically assess their own development to know the progress they’re making on each of them

  • Inquiry and analysis
  • Critical thinking
  • Creative thinking
  • Written and Oral communication
  • Quantitative literacy
  • Information literacy
  • Teamwork
  • Problem solving
  • Intercultural knowledge and competence
