Summary

This case study dives deep into Zone Learning, a unique form of experiential learning pioneered at Ryerson University. Ten incubators across the campus-including the Transmedia Zone, the Design Fabrication Zone and the Social Ventures Zone- foster creative innovation and support emerging talent. Learning is rooted in start-up and social change models for taking an idea from concept to viable prototype and beyond, designed to provide students with personal and career advantages in a changing and uncertain economy. As part of multi-disciplinary teams, students gain first-hand experience in creating an initiative from the ground up, with real potential for social, creative and economic impact.
