Roundtable Discussion: Student Work for Public Audiences

Sheridan Center for Teaching & Learning

How does learning deepen and become more meaningful when we ask our students to produce work for an audience beyond the classroom? How do we balance the timeline required for high quality products for public presentation with the time students need to engage in the learning process (which includes leaving room to fail)? Come hear examples from colleagues about how they designed, implemented and assessed student projects for audiences beyond the classroom. Roundtable Members: Steven Lubar (American Studies) Steven Subotnick (RISD, Visual Arts) John Stein (Neuroscience) Elizabeth Hoover (American Studies) Andrew Dufton & Linda Gosner (Archaeology)
