We are hosting a semester-long program for UVA students interested in the future of education. Spark students attend design thinking workshops to learn how to think critically and creatively to solve problems in education. Graduates of Spark have a comprehensive understanding of design thinking and are prepared for careers as innovative educators, education entrepreneurs, non-profit leaders, and education policymakers. For more information on the Spark class visit HackCville’s Spark information page.
The Education Forum
Mondays from 7:00 - 8:30PM at OpenGrounds (1400 University Ave.), from February 6th, 2017 to April 24th, 2017
Sign-ups for The Education Forum are open all semester!
The Education Forum is a semester-long series of dialogues for students and community members who are interested in education. Participants will meet weekly to explore educational policy, philosophy, and pedagogy through literature and media. Each session will center around a question-based “module,” such as “what baseline knowledge should all graduates of K-12 public education acquire?” Those who are unable to make a weekly commitment can attend individual sessions and participate virtually by subscribing to mailing list of curated articles and videos.
Designing Learning Experiences
Sign-ups for Designing Learning Experiences are open all semester!
ReinventED Lab has designed a series of workshops to help today’s and tomorrow’s innovators in the field of education. More and more often, students are looking for alternative learning experiences and more and more opportunities for them are arising. Whether you are running a mentorship program, a skill development class, an entrepreneurial incubator, or some other innovative educational program, this workshop series can help ensure that you are providing quality experiences for your participants.
