Design-Based Learning is structured around Essential Questions described in the standard K–12 curricula content. Encompassing all subject areas, Design-Based Learning is an interdisciplinary methodology that ignites creativity and motivates civic engagement to teach critical thinking and problem solving. Join us for an introduction to Design-based Learning with Jessica Heim, Director of the Design-Based Learning Project at UCLA Center X in the UCLA School of Education & Information Studies.
For this session, please have a few simple recyclable materials gathered in advance as well as simple building materials (scissors, tape, glue). Examples of recyclables are: paper plates, paper, yarn, foil, etc. Be ready to go through an engaging design challenge and share your creations with the group to learn more about Design-Based Learning.
