During this session, we will push participants to think deeply about how to engage students, convey disciplinary content, and ensure equitable collaboration in groups. Session attendees will participate in a hands-on design thinking process to develop a curriculum that is rigorous, relevant, and accessible for all students. Participants will explore connected learning, an inquiry-based approach assessment framework for competency-based learning. We will invite participants into the exciting PBL and design thinking approach being used at The U School in conjunction with the Project-Based Learning (PBL) Certificate Program at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education. Members of The U School Humanities department will share examples of arts-based partnerships we have leveraged in our curriculum over the past 4 years, from Moore College of Art and Design to the Mural Arts Program to Opera Philadelphia. At the beginning of the workshop, we’ll do a network map together to explore potential art based and community partnerships (digital and non-digital). Participants will complete design-sprints to outline and prototype PBL projects that could be used in competency-based or digital portfolio methods in order to help students become effective curators of their own learning. Participants will leave this session with a network map of community partners, a template for a design-thinking approach to unit design, and an outline for a unit to be implemented in their own learning environment.
