Abstract

A Day in the Life of a Student workshop is a design thinking workshop developed by DLR Group (an integrated design firm) and adapted by the Innovative Learning Environment and Teacher Change project at the University of Melbourne, Australia. The activities involve educators mapping out how one student spends his/her day in school and building a model of the learning environment based on this one student. With an emphasis on the visual learning that comes from modelling experiences, this workshop helps participants develop student-improvement focused practices in innovative learning environments.
