2015 3M National Student Fellows Special Session - Student Power: The Empowered Learner in Action

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Presenters - Jason Earl with Justine Baek, Karen Young & guest students from across Canada

How do we define empowered learners?  Who are empowered learners?  What are the actions of empowered learners?  How can higher education support empowered learners, their learning, advocacy and work?  How does higher education re/create barriers for empowered learners?  How does higher education suppress empowered learners?  How are faculty called to action to advocate for and support empowered learners?  ......  These are some of the possible questions participants will have the opportunity to discuss.

This session will have a balance of participant discussion (prompted by guiding questions such as above), and students presenting their perspectives on student power in action.

Content generated by students, and presented by students.  Facilitated by the 2015 3M National Student Fellowship cohort, this session is based on their collaborative projects which include (1) the development of a 3M NSF facilitated blogging website for student voice in higher education across Canada, (2) discussions about how higher education is broken through the eyes of students, and (3) student visions for changing higher education.  Student voices (from within and outside the 3M NSF) are intended to be integrated throughout the interactive workshop.
