The Graduate School of Education launched its first course through the online education platform HarvardX on Tuesday. The new course—GSE1x: “Unlocking the Immunity to Change: A New Approach to Personal Improvement”—will focus on helping people achieve their personal goals through online videos, interactive elements, and forums. It is taught by two members of the Graduate School of Education faculty—professor of adult learning and professional development Robert Kegan and lecturer Lisa L. Lahey. In 2009, Kegan and Lahey co-authored a book that presented the “Immunity to Change” theory, which uses the immune system as a metaphor to explain how humans resist change. The book also offers a set of psychological tools that, according to Kegan and Lahey, facilitate change.
