    Sticky notes for ideas
    Grouping ideas according to themes/patterns
    Collective observations
  • student-centered perspective...
    “Learning results from what the student does and thinks and only from what the student does and thinks. The teacher can advance learning only by influencing what the student does to learn.”
    - Herbert Simon ( late Prof. Carnegie Mellon University)
  • student-centered principles
    Active, experiential
    Shared power between teacher/student: teacher as guide
    Focus on deep learning* and understanding
