Students can apply their independent learning within SEDA to projects and coursework, and will be trained using an on-demand online learning platform coupled with an on-demand and in-person, hands-on skills training with learning block coaches. The SEDA learning blocks are accessible to anybody with a ‘umich.edu’ email address.
The learning block approach will:
- Increase the quality of faculty-student interaction
- Bring students up to speed faster on skills integral to socially engaged design
- Appeal to a more “learn through technology” generation
- Reduce workload for faculty members working in socially-engaged design space
