The Art & Craft of Designing and Facilitating Learning Spaces
January 8 - 10, 2020
The Badavas Center for Innovation in Teaching & Learning is delighted to collaborate with award-winning B-Corp Emzingo to bring top creativity and design school Kaospilot master class to Boston!
The course is for leaders, faculty, staff, curriculum designers and program directors in higher education as well as trainers, consultants and entrepreneurs in education. The Art and Craft of Designing & Facilitating Learning Spaces Masterclass will introduce, explore and train participants in experiential learning and teaching.
Badavas Center Spark Sessions provide a place and time for cross-campus collaboration. These interactive workshops allow you to make connections, share perspectives, seed a new idea or advance an existing project. This fall, Spark Sessions focus on helping Bentley faculty and staff to design learning experience pilots for the core curriculum structure presented by the Curriculum Reform Task Force (TF 3.0).
The Badavas Center was established by a generous gift from former Chair of the Board of Trustees Robert ’74 and his wife Kally Badavas. Under the leadership of Executive Director Dr. Suzanne Dove, the Center supports campus-wide teaching and curriculum innovation, provides thought leadership to the campus community and external partners, and stimulates strategic initiatives to ensure that Bentley remains at the forefront of innovation in teaching and learning.
Join us on Thursday, December 5 at 2:00 p.m. in the Wilder Pavilion for the Opening Celebration!
