Stella and Charles Guttman CC, is part of a year long study conducted by “The Take Away”. In this podcast students express their experience with place-based learning. What do you think your students will say after their place-based learning opportunities?

Today’s creativity and excitement was contagious!

What can teaching teachers really be? What is innovation and innovative? We shared a lot through the semester do I thought I would continue to share. Here is a recent post from NPR that makes me ever more hopeful for innovative innovation!
I want to Thank Karen and the Living Lab for connecting me with so many outstanding professors at CUNY. The Living Lab exercises and meetings challenged me to re-evaluate my course and it’s potential in general education. I gained a tremendous amount of clarity as to what was working and, more importantly, what needed to be improved. In particular I am enhancing my student assessment criteria to allow for more depth and clarity. I am re-writing my rubric for assessment and developing new assignments based of some of the Gen Ed guidelines. I am also heartened to know that the Gen Ed teaching I have been doing was so well received. I look forward to the Fall where I can further develop the place based and community supported projects that are the core of my Architecture Design studio.
Thank you AF Olga for finding this illustration and sharing it with us. I believe this rendition of his TED Talk is exactly what we need. Communication happens in so many ways, what ways have you seen great things communicated?

I thought it would be fun to compile favorite TED Talks. Here’s one that I use in a few classes: What I learned from Nelson Mandela
