Learning in Depth, founded by Kieran Egan in 2008, is a simple though radical innovation in curriculum and instruction designed to ensure that all students become experts about something during their school years. Each child is given a particular topic to learn about through her or his whole school career, in addition to the usual curriculum, and builds a personal portfolio on the topic. To the surprise of many, children usually take to the program with great enthusiasm, and within a few months LiD begins to transform their experience as learners. The program usually takes about an hour a week, with the students working outside school time increasingly.
The program now involves thousands of children in many Countries.
In Italy it was launched in Fall 2017 with some schools of Modena and Bolzano and is led by Federico Corni and Enrico Giliberti.
