Time: Friday, February 20th from 1:30-4:30pm
Location: Main Library Learning Commons
Students look at and treat assignments differently when those assignments culminate in the dynamic presentation of their work in a public space. Faculty can use assignments and projects to encourage students to engage with the spaces and people around them
This workshop hosted by the Main Library Learning Commons will provide instructors the opportunity to reimagine how their classes can perform or display student works in the Learning Commons space. Participants will
- tour the Learning Commons facilities.
- learn how faculty and campus partners have used the Learning Commons
- have time to rework a current or previous assignment into something that can be displayed or performed in the Learning Commons.
Guest instructors will share their insights and experiences in using the Learning Commons to promote their student’s work. Participants will leave with a variety of project ideas for classroom use and will be well on their way towards reimagining a current or old assignment to be hosted in the Learning Commons. The institute is open to all faculty and instructors. There is no cost to attend, although pre-registration to the institute is required. Please register here.
