A Solutions in Action Webcast - View the Session Archive

Monday, September 21, 1:00 p.m. EDT

As we discover more about the way that people learn, how can we evolve our conversations about learning environments to reflect learning that is active, inquiry driven, and focused on knowledge creation? How do we build classroom ecologies that encourage students to think critically and work together?

Can we move outside the box of a four-walled classroom to begin developing learning environments that take advantage of the content offered in both the physical and the virtual worlds?

Join us for this special hour-long Solutions in Action webcast as part of the EDUCAUSE Top Teaching and Learning Challenges, 2009 to explore new learning environments on our campuses. Each webcast features a lightning round of five-minute presentations from community members sharing how their campus is facing the challenge. No registration is required, and each session will be hosted online in Adobe Acrobat Connect to facilitate participant interaction with the speakers and with each other.
