Collaborating with Users to Design Learning Spaces: Playing Nicely in the Sandbox

Wednesday, January 21 | 2:30PM–4:30PM | Curacao 5-8
Session Type: Professional Development
In 2007, we collaboratively transformed an abandoned swimming pool into a “sandbox classroom,” where faculty and students are encouraged to approach teaching and learning with the curious spirit of children exploring and learning about their world in a sandbox. As part of our CI Implementation Committee of selected faculty, staff, and students, a subcommittee was formed to design grid-enhanced classrooms that build on what we've learned from our first sandbox classroom. Get a sneak peek of our proposal, due in March 2009, to see where we're headed with grid-enhanced sandbox classrooms.
