All About Shu Ha Ri

the Why
Behind our
eduScrum Learning Path

We don‘t believe in eduScrum® as a tool.
We believe in our eduScrum® students, teachers, and educators
empowering and learning with as well as from each other.
Our eduScrum® Community is the place built and building up by this belief.

2021 - the Second eduScrum® Decade has begun
eduScrum® enters the second decade of its exciting development in 2021. From its first use in a teaching project in the chemistry lessons of eduScrum® inventor Willy Wijnands eduScrum® made its leap into further teaching projects, subjects, other schools, other types of schools, diverse areas of education as well as in more than 40 different countries. Numerous experiences in applying and teaching eduScrum® have developed into the eduScrum® Shu Ha Ri learning path.
Shu Ha Ri
The term 'Shu Ha Ri ' is often associated in Europe with Japanese martial arts. A connection that also exists for eduScrum®, as Willy Wijnands always incorporates his experience as an Aikido teacher into all other educational areas. 'Shu Ha Ri' corresponds to the idea of learning in stages, as there is, for example, also in crafts. Taking this comparison further, in the 'Shu' level, the learner is to be seen as an apprentice, observing mindfully, following procedures and instructions to discover and understand. In the 'Ha' level, it is time to leave the tracks a bit and add more and more of one's own ideas and developments to the learning process. Working towards a 'journeyman's piece' is a good transfer for this. Trial and error and discovery are called for. As soon as someone in the 'Ha' level is equal to the 'master' in knowledge and ability, he can continue to create, teach, and bring in his style. In the 'Ri' level, we have made the experience in different areas of life, but especially at eduScrum®, that even when teaching starts in the 'Ha' level, learning never stops in the 'Ri.' Whoever continues to follow the Shu Ha Ri path in eduScrum® thus gains 'teaching' and 'learning' mastery.
Inspire, Practice and Think Anew
The eduScrum® Shu Ha Ri path is intended to give all those connected to the eduScrum® Community, in their learning level, orientation, support, and extensive opportunities for their personal learning path together with other companions. Let the landmarks of the eduScrum® Shu-Ha-Ri path presented here inspire you. Maybe you will soon be accompanied by our eduScrum® team with extensive experience, individual and team-oriented training & workshops, as well as the joy of always thinking eduScrum® along and anew.

Life-Long-Learning and Kaizen

For Learning Organizations

Working together in an agile way means following the idea of continuous improvement (KAIZEN) and learning together. In the face of complex, dynamically evolving challenges, it is becoming increasingly essential for organizations to foster this learning with and from each other.

In our classrooms and learning spaces we have experienced that small, self-organized teams can boost the learning progress of bigger learning groups. During the last years, we encountered more and more innovative educators in adult education, agile coaches, organizational ad personnel development managers using eduScrum as a bridge to Scrum, initiating, fostering and facilitating organizational learning.

You can't learn in depth about eduScrum when you don't give it a try, experience it, experiment, inspect and adapt in transparent way together. What we have encountered in the educational environment of schools and universities, we also offer for organizations fostering their own learning by building up "learning task forces" supported and fostered by the methodological framework eduScrum.

You are interested in the learning steps and our case studies. Here you get further information.

Giving Wings to Students & Teachers

For Teachers & Students

eduScrum is an adaptation of Scrum for all forms of education.
eduScrum turns education upside down!

eduScrum is an active form of collaboration, with which students in teams complete assignments according to a fixed rhythm. They plan and determine their own activities and keep track of progress. The teacher 'determines' the assignments, coaches and gives advice.

eduScrum can give you wings!
But when you don't explain the WHY
you can't fly.

With eduScrum, students become the owners of their own learning process, resulting in intrinsic motivation, fun, personal growth and better results. The teacher determines the WHY and the WHAT, the students the HOW. A groundbreaking way of education, where personalized learning plays a very important role, just like the 4 C's: Creativity, Collaboration, Communication & Critical thinking.

eduScrum serves a powerful methodological framework without solving didactic issues and the choice of motivating learning products as well as the way to sharing a common why within the learner teams.

Our communities of practice for students, teachers, and educators support you to get started. Together with other teachers you find the way of implementing eduScrum that suits the needs of your learners, you and the curriculum you are responsible for.

Before you step in, you can experience the "Community of Practice feeling" in the last session of your eduScrum Grade 1 Basic Training. More info
