Learning happens not only in schools, but also in places like community organizations, museums, after-school programs, and libraries. In fact, in fields such as science and technology, these informal environments are critical in supporting learners from under-represented groups and in providing resources that might not be available in formal K-12 or university classrooms.

Our Fall 2017 series presents research and practices that bring community knowledge to a variety of learning environments. It aims to help new and practicing teachers engage with communities and build bridges between their classrooms and informal learning environments.

All events will be 1:25-2:25 in Willard Hall 207.

Audience members are welcome to participate in a discussion with the speaker following the colloquia.
