Croatia Study Tour


By Jennifer Ball and Lauren Kilroy-Ewbank

Recently we participated in a workshop on Team-Based Learning (TBL) at Brooklyn College, a process where your students are divided into permanent teams for the entire semester. The teams work during class on activities based on readings. You can read more about it in a short article in The Chronicle of Higher Education. Also take a look at the TBL website. Similar to the ‘Flipped Classroom’ students do the reading (yes! they actually do it) BEFORE the subject is taught in class and are quizzed on that material before each unit of study (typically 4-7 units a semester). Classroom time, then, is spent on active learning activities in teams that are meant to promote deeper learning than a typical lecture. 


  • Emerging Public Spaces

    Brooklyn | Dates: 10 May, 2014
    Van Alen and Public Workshop, an organization that creates engaging opportunities for youth and their communities to shape the design of their cities, invite you to join us for an outdoor, hands-on construction workshop in Albee Square in Downtown Brooklyn, where we’ll work together and build a pop-up pavilion in the pedestrian plaza. Following the workshop, we’ll convene in the collaboratively constructed space to discuss how as city-dwellers we use—and define the use of—public space.
