Community Voices: An Immersive Project Based Learning Experience
Wednesday, March 8
11:00AM - 5:00PM
JW Marriott - Salon G
Buck Institute for Education - Exec Dir
Buck Institute for Education - Sr. Director, Innovation and Partnership Development
Participants will experience a full day, immersive Project Based Learning unit from the stance of a learner to understand the transformative nature of learning by doing, and reflect on the implications of teaching practice and curriculum design when using PBL. In this project “slice,” participants will assume the role of community planners, working together in teams to explore the local and cultural context of Austin, develop a digital interpretation of their findings, and craft a proposed vision for the future of the city. Participants are highly encouraged to arrive promptly at start time and commit to a full day for the experience. Please wear comfortable shoes for walking.
