The LiDKit

Developed by Kieran Egan and the LiDKit Team

The LidKit is designed to help implement the Learning in Depth (LiD) programme. Students thoroughly explore a single topic during their school career, gradually becoming experts in this area of study. While the basic idea is quite simple, the implications of the programme for students, teachers and schools can be profound. Through this programme, students develop a love of learning, a thirst for knowledge and a curiosity about the world around them.


Designed for teachers who will be supervising the development of students’ LiD portfolios, this resource kit offers practical ideas for keeping students imaginatively engaged with their LiD topics.The LiDKit compiles materials for teachers who want to implement LiD in their classrooms or schools, as well as introduce LiD to other teachers, administrators and parents. LiD programmes have been implemented in Canada, the USA, Europe, Africa, Japan, Australia and the Middle East. Children from all over the world have taken to the programme with great enthusiasm.
