Learning becomes co-created, with cohorts working collaboratively to design experiences that are engaging for all. In this workshop participants will explore how to create of authentic learning opporunties, units, coursework, programs and initatives through an empathy driven design thinking framework. Most importantly, they'll gain insights into boosting student agency over learning and truly transforming the traditional classroom model.
