Situated Learning Community Event
Tuesday, Mar 12th


You are cordially invited to a DoIT Engage Community Event: Teaching with Situated Learning. The event features campus faculty and instructors who are experimenting with situated learning in their instruction to promote deeper student engagement. Situated learning uses a collaborative learning environment to simulate real world problems, situations, and scenarios that help students “situate” knowledge in its own cultural context.
