Moderator: Junsong Zhang
Students: Dong Sun, Jedidah Chiusa, Paola Ortiz
Panel: Experiential Learning and Social Change Through Projects in Studios, Labs, and Maker Spaces
The landscape of education has been continuously evolving in response to the cultural, economic, and technological changes in society. In the past decade, we have witnessed a growing establishment of studios, labs, and maker spaces in post-secondary institutions to foster creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving skills, often through project-based experiential learning. These spaces and the resulting projects also play a role in shaping and changing our society in different ways.
This panel discussion aims to bridge theory and practice of project-based experiential learning by sharing experiences and perspectives from students. We will delve into the powerful potential of labs, studios, and makerspaces as unique learning environments that foster vital skills and competencies for today’s society. Additionally, we will discuss how we might facilitate social changes through doing, making, and collaborating with each other. By the end of the session, participants will also write up a few take-aways and thoughts/ideas for future sessions.
