Studio-Based Online Learning

Education in architecture and design offers studio-based learning environments that foster investigation, synthesis, application, and sharing of knowledge. The studio is also a place for students to gain self-knowledge and develop themselves as agents of change. This webinar will help faculty begin to design and guide authentic engagement through studio-based online learning. We will introduce how the virtual studio, as a decentralized learning space, can build community through self-directed discovery, play, and personal reflection. The speakers will also address how faculty can shape and expand their roles as conveners of a distributed community.
