#flippedfailure: Designing "Unsettled" Learning Spaces Beyond the Flipped Classroom

Flipped Session
Thursday January 23, 2014 10:30am to 11:45am

How might educators and their students co-design multiple learning spaces that “unsettle” classrooms as primary settings for where, how, and when teaching and learning occurs?  Innovation at the intersection of instructional design, educational technology, and digital media seldom fosters distributed collaboration beyond classroom walls or online discussion forums.  Participants will evaluate the constraints and affordances of both physical places and virtual spaces for teaching and learning.  Working as designers to experiment, fail fast, and iterate, participants will engage a series of design exercises intended to situate the locations and behaviors of teaching and learning beyond the “classroom-as-container.”
