Hustle-Based Learning
“The hustle is an art; I painted what I would think.”
-William Leonard Roberts II
We stand at the precipice of a permanent revolution. We no longer hold the monopoly on knowledge; we no longer represent the apex of information in a classroom. Instead, we are the designers of experiences, the creators of puzzles. We are artists meant to delicately interweave concepts, goals, and ideas like a set of Matryoshka dolls for our students to unpack. At the end of this session, you will walk away with a basic understanding of hustle-based learning and a lookbook of ideas to put into action on Monday.
