Fresh Perspectives: Harnessing Learning Challenges for Deeper Learning

On November 11, 2009, The LEC hosted “Fresh Perspectives: Harnessing Learning Challenges for Deeper Learning,” a symposium featuring student and faculty panels. MCNY Students (Hans Aguila, Palmer Ashe, Robert Burch, Jilian St. Hill and Tanya Thomas) presented their fears and blocks and described how working to overcome them has helped to formulate new priorities in their learning, making it more relevant, more personal and connected to their projects beyond MCNY. Faculty (Andrew Brown, Lynne Dolle, Richard Grallo, Jaya Kannan, Jinx Roosevelt, and Judith Simonsen) shared what they’ve learned watching students struggle, and in some cases, the similarities they’ve seen to their own experiences as learners.

Via downloadable iTunes podcasts, we are able to provide audio recordings from the symposium.
