Center for Education Through eXploration

The ETX Center promotes a new way of teaching. Traditional approaches, especially in science, emphasizes mastery of facts, teaching from authority, and disciplinary silos. We aim to change the practice of teaching and learning by articulating and advancing a new philosophy: teaching through exploration of the unknown, rather than through mastery of what is known, centered on transdisciplinary questions rather than disciplines. We call this philosophy "Education Through eXploration" – or ETX.
