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.

  • A Monumental Task: Managing & Preserving Architectural Records

    Buffalo | Dates: 17 Jul, 2014
    Architectural records are vital documentation of our built environment and provide insight into social and economic trends throughout history. The tasks of collecting, managing, preserving and providing access to these records can be a challenge to those charged with their care. Speakers at this conference will address the many aspects of caring for architectural record collections. Participants will learn about the significance of architectural records; the array of materials and methods used to create them; collecting policies; access and use recommendations; preventive preservation measures; reformatting and management of electronic files; as well as have opportunities to engage in discussions with fellow participants who are managing similar collections.
