Architecture: Space Power and Community: Summer Institute for k-12 Educators

Workshop | June 25 – 27, 2018 every day | 9 a.m.-4 p.m. | UC Berkeley Extension (Golden Bear Center), Suite 510 Conference Room

 ORIAS (Office of Resources for International and Area Studies)

The 2018 Summer Institute for k-12 teachers will explore the interplay between built spaces, individuals, communities, and institutions. Our program will begin with recent research into how the human brain interacts with physical spaces. From there, participants will learn about a global sampling of built environments, considering spaces from perspectives such as visual arts, religious traditions, anthropology, and building technologies.

Teachers who wish to receive professional development credit will be expected to attend an extended afternoon session, during which they will work to modify an existing classroom unit to incorporate new content. Teams of teachers are encouraged to attend and build curriculum together.

 This event is for k-12 teachers.
