LIVE SESSION

AIA CEU: 1 LU

ABSTRACT:
Everyone knows the world is changing -- but what is it shifting from, and to?

This is the fundamental question of our time and the foundation of the future. It requires provocative questions and dynamic answers, and a different way of thinking about design.

The good news is that the answers are all around us, thanks to the inherent wisdom of the natural world.

How, then, should we shift the way we think about ourselves, one another, and the wider world? And what will the future of learning, and of learning design, look like as a result?

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
#1: Discover a different framework for thinking about learning design
#2: Explore specific strategies for facilitating meaningful group work
#3: Experiment with different processes for creative thinking
#4: Begin to reimagine pedagogical, cultural and spatial design through a more ecological lens
