Join us for a half day event to start a campus-wide discussion about connected learning environments. In order to ground our conversation, results from a semester-long research study investigating Design Lab 1 will be presented along with several themes emerging from the findings.
Any space, whether physical or virtual, can dramatically affect learning. Connections between people, programs, and technology within these spaces can foster new, dynamic, and integrative approaches to teaching and learning that challenge traditional notions of instruction, interaction, and student engagement. Examples of connected learning environments at Michigan include the Brandon Center in the School of Education and Design Lab 1 in the Duderstadt Center.

This event is part of Open Education Week.
Open education seeks a world where the desire to learn is fully met by the opportunity to do so and where everyone, everywhere is able to access affordable, educationally/culturally appropriate opportunities to gain whatever knowledge or training they desire.
