What is evolvED?
evolvED is all about evolution and (higher) education. I mean evolution in both the “change over time” way — think, how can we select for the best parts of higher education? In what ways is it changing, or not? — but also in the specific scientific sense as I explore ways in which findings from the evolutionary social sciences can inform pedagogy and other modern issues in higher ed. I am after all an evolutionary social scientist.
