What is a connected learning environment? From a 2013 report from the Digital Media and Learning Research Hub in Irvine, CA, it is a “design model [that] builds on this approach by focusing on supports and mechanisms for building environments that connect learning across the spheres of interests, peer culture, and academic life.

The event will kick off discussing the 2013 report as well as one successful interdisciplinary and technology-enabled environment, Design Lab 1 in the Duderstadt Center, will be presented along with several themes emerging from the findings.

See the full agenda here (with full abstracts available) and register for the event here.

The Connected Learning Environment Series is sponsored by MLibrary and by the Collaborative Domain Group, a cross disciplinary team of faculty and administrators across the university.
