Embracing a Growth Mindset: High School Learning Environments for the Next Decade and Beyond

November 3, 2016, 8 a.m. - 9 a.m.; Room 326

Designers and educators sit at the ideal intersection to co-construct learning environments that address the serious social change needed in the move towards a growth mindset, where the learning milieu enables, engages and empowers all to achieve. Join the conversation and explore what spatial possibilities have begun to emerge around the world. What can happen when both program and place break free from the perspective that is dominated by the limitations of industrial-era school facilities? Using exemplar works, the panel will prompt simultaneous and generative dialogue on innovation that embodies a growth mindset for the next decade and beyond.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore the range of issues facing high school learners.
  • Learn how design thinking can reframe the perceived relationship between space and program.
  • Discover the power of employing both hard and soft design in tandem; how can the marriage of facility, furniture and practice ensure each student has an opportunity for deep learning?
  • Take a deep dive into international precedents that have embraced a growth mindset.
