An Introduction to Project-Based Learning

In this hands-on approach to teaching, students create schoolwork that demonstrates core subject knowledge. For more information and resources on project-bas...
Leslie Hammersmith's insight:

A nice video explaining how project-based learning is implemented in K-12 STEM classes. Project-based is often the same thing as Active Learning. Nowadays, we often envision a certain type of classroom design along with active learning (i.e. SCALE), but this video shows you how active learning can be successful in many types of spaces, as long as the curriculum supports it.

Learning spaces need not be boring (or dear), says Bela Arora

Improving the learning environment needn’t break the bank, Bela Arora argues, but reflecting on its users is essential (Learning spaces need not be boring (or dear), says Bela Arora | PugPig Content | Times Higher Education
Leslie Hammersmith's insight:

When we discuss student-centered approaches to learning and teaching, we shouldn't focus only on pedagogy and curriculum design. The physical environment, when discussing teaching and learning with a physical presence, can have a significant impact on effective learning. When learning environments are part of the discussion, there tends to be more focus on the technology-enhanced aspects rather than attention on the whole physical environment. Taking an holistic approach to the learning environment, looking at everything from pedagogy to technology to physical design, is a more promising approach to creating effective environments for teaching and learning.

We Need More EdTech, But Less Technology In The... | Learning Spaces in Higher Ed | Scoop.it
Technology plays a primary role in my teaching, but I rarely turn on the computer that makes the classroom “smart.” Occasionally, I project the class tweet stream. I am an advocate of Twitter for higher ed.
Leslie Hammersmith's insight:

"I’ve moved everything that can be more efficiently disseminated through smart phones, tablets, and personal computers to the digital realm. Rather than lecture, I make videos and podcasts. Rather than wasting face-to-face time with slideshows full of bullet points of facts, I email the Powerpoints. If it is “content”–that is, if it can be poured from chalice to vessel, if it can be contained–it has no place in the classroom."

Research shows the positive effect of nature on health and happiness. So why is the environment an issue on the margins of debate?
Leslie Hammersmith's insight:

Not exactly about higher education learning spaces, but look at the research on how much nature contributes to our well being and stress relief. Important considerations when designing spaces.
