Join the AIA|DC Committee on Architecture for Education and Howard University School of Architecture for an evening dedicated to re-imagining the US system of education with teachers, students, and professionals.The school model in the US dates back to 1893, but the world around us has changed profoundly in terms of the skills needed to thrive in a globalized economy, new methods of communication, and advances in school design. Learn more about how architecture responds to and drives these changes during the screening of Most Likely To Succeed, winner of more than 15 awards for its coverage of the topic of school and its ability to inspire audiences with sense of purpose and possibility.After the movie, participants will have the chance to discuss topics of education and architecture with current students of architecture and professionals in the field during a panel that includes Dr. Hazel Edwards, the Chair of Howard University’s School of Architecture.Organized by: AIA|DC Committee on Architecture for EducationAfter attending this program, participants will be able to: 1. Summarize the history of schools in the United States and explain how changes in the economy and school design are interrelated;2. Analyze the school design choices made by High Tech High’s founders and describe how these can affect student learning and success;3. Identify “micro-innovations” in the school environment that can create great impact without substantial cost; and 4. Investigate how the design of schools can prepare students for their future in the new knowledge economy, which rewards creativity, collaboration, and innovation.Credits: 2.0 LUsPrice:Free for students$10 for Assoc.
