4CAST'18 - Learning Architects: Design Thinking in the Classroom

In higher education, Design Thinking encourages faculty to better understand their students and assess different pedagogies to enhance the learning experience. 4CAST’18 will provide an opportunity for UI faculty to envision themselves as learning architects with the notion that teaching is itself a design challenge. Instructors will be encouraged to think creatively, entertain new possibilities, break habits of mind, and celebrate failure.

The morning will consist of a keynote address followed by an interactive workshop. UI faculty and staff will present breakout sessions in the afternoon highlighting their innovative teaching strategies.

This year's event is hosted and organized in partnership with the Office of Teaching, Learning & Technology, and UI Libraries. 

This event is intended for faculty at the University of Iowa.
