Abstract

Abstract: At a time of substantial change, globalization, and ubiquitous access to information, educators struggle to change even the most basic aspects of their classrooms. This is especially true for those in challenging contexts where many perpetuate the mind numbingŽ practice of rote instruction. This paper describes a collaborative partnership among academics in Canada and East Africa as they develop Innovative Learning Centres (ILC) in their respective institutions to leapfrog pedagogy in imagin ative ways, drawing on experiential learning and the Maker Movement in a studio based learning environment.

 

Keywords: Keywords: Transformative pedagogy, Maker Movement, design thinking, studio based learning, challenging contexts
