T550: Designing for Learning by Creating

Semester: 

Fall

How do we design learning experiences that are meaningful, engaging, and support learner agency? In T550, we explore this question through the lens of constructionism, a theory of learning that underscores the importance of personalizing, creating, sharing, and reflecting in learning experiences. The class is guided by the core tenets of constructionism, both in content and in process. You will be invited to personalize, create, share, and reflect throughout the semester, through weekly readings, reflective writing, small projects, and a term-long project. By participating in the T550 creative community, you will engage with the theory and practice of designing for learning by creating—for yourself and for others. Anyone who is interested in exploring the theory and practice of designing for learning by creating is encouraged to enroll. No prerequisites; no prior experience with technology or learning design required. No auditors.
