During their time at UofSC, our undergraduate students enroll in courses, participate in cocurricular engagements, hold down jobs while preparing themselves for their future careers, engage with the community, and manage their own personal challenges (AAC&U/Carnegie Foundation, 2004), but how do they make sense of these varied experiences and realize how they all interconnect? Integrative learning provides students with strategies to make connections between these within and beyond the classroom activities to help them apply their skills to new and complex problems and challenges.

This workshop explores teaching strategies and philosophies that encourage students to engage in activities beyond the classroom and then have students relate those experiences to their courses and curriculum. After reviewing current research and practices on integrative and experiential learning, how the Center for Integrative and Experiential Learning supports IL and EL, including plans for the new Quality Enhancement Plan, Experience by Design, participants will discuss strategies for encouraging students to reflect and make interdisciplinary connections between their experiences within and beyond the classroom to promote creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving.

What is Design Thinking and why has it increased in popularity recently? This presentation will take participants through the ideology and methodology of the Design Thinking process. Participants will get an understanding of how Design Thinking leverages a structured methodology designed to provide rapid and effective solutions to complex challenges. The presentation will address the importance of using a human-centric approach while incorporating a handful of tools to creatively achieve desired results. Design Thinking offers many benefits to faculty in and out of the classroom.

For those interested, this presentation does not specifically address how to incorporate Design Thinking into your classes. However, a follow-up to this presentation will be offered which addresses those concerns.  Register
