Curriculum counts
I appreciated the confluence of individuals from so many different backgrounds and cultures.

[At Peabody] I learned that the importance of designing an effective curriculum cannot be overemphasized. My biggest takeaway was in how everything I learnt culminated in the Capstone experience where I could integrate and put in practice the various aspects of curriculum design. I appreciated the confluence of individuals from so many different backgrounds and cultures. This made for very rich classroom discussions and brought to light how important the local context is to education policy design and implementation. The second thing was the freedom to design my own program. This was something I really valued. The Learning and Design program understood that each of us had our own needs and that freedom allowed me to take courses that will benefit my future career.
