Skidmore College: Spaces for experiencing the power of art in the process of learning
We will be exploring some audacious questions about why place-based learning matters and sharing stories from campuses giving students campus-based experiences through which they become, practice becoming. Some audacious questions we will be exploring:
·         In a time when information can be accessed, examined, shared, and translated into practice virtually, beyond boundaries of time, place, why do physical spaces matter to the undergraduate learning experience?
·         What is it that we want our undergraduate learners to become that is enabled by “in-the-present, in the space” interactions in which students are actively engaged in a social and supportive community?
·         What are the attributes, the affordances of spaces that “work” in the service of robust learning?
