Organizer

Design Learning Network

The Design Learning Network offers K-12 educators and their students opportunities to embrace design as a “pedagogical” approach to teaching and learning best practices – our goal is for students to learn how to become confident creative problem-solvers, take ownership of their learning, and make good choices. The ultimate goal of the Design Learning Network is to collaborate with members and international partners to create effective and sustainable design learning links between primary, secondary, and higher education students and teachers on a global scale.

The overarching objective of the network is to create a wide cross-section of disciplines to engage in meaningful design learning experiences within a network of activities such as design learning challenges, workshops, and symposiums, along with dynamic online communications and collaborations. Grounded in an action research approach, the aim of the network’s efforts is to mindfully enhance overall educational experiences for all educators and students involved.
