Sears think[box]

The collaborative initiative between UCITE and Sears think[box] offers faculty the opportunity to learn about Sears think[box] and incorporate that knowledge into their teaching. Faculty are invited to apply for a 5-week series of interactive workshops designed to empower them to incorporate CWRU’s innovative resources into their classroom experience. Specifically, faculty will learn how to navigate and use the technological and fabrication resources at Sears think[box] in order to spark creative confidence in their students; develop an understanding of the affordances of process-based and product-based learning; and participate in a dynamic experiential learning and reflective discussion environment with other faculty across the university to help reinvigorate their curricula.

These sessions will be held jointly between the UCITE and Sears think[box] offices.

There 6 session dates, 5 of which occur on fixed dates/times. All sessions are mandatory.

These fixed sessions are on Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. on the following dates:  September 28; October 5, 12, 19, 26.   

The remaining session will be determined based on the participants' schedules.

This short-term series will give faculty a chance to integrate the newly learned concepts into their fall curriculum or to begin planning ahead for the spring semester.
