Arriscraft Lecture Series – ARCHITECTURE OUTSIDE THE LINES – investigates the edge of professional architecture, where architects, clients, planners, and other participants in the building world talk about particular aspects of their work outside of the conventional boundaries of the architectural profession. In considering this work, by some of the remarkable individuals engaged in new forms of architecture and new forms of architectural enterprise – all in the Greater Toronto Area – the series mounts a constructive critique of the detached, professional model of architectural practice. It is intent on seeing what might happen next – in building, in engineering, in development, and in design.

How can we determine if students are taking a deep or surface approach to their understanding of the course material we deliver?  Are our students digging deep or skimming the surface of their learning? Furthermore, how do our students know for themselves if they are developing lasting understanding of key concepts? In this workshop we will discuss some definitions of deep, surface and strategic approaches to learning as presented in the literature. We will then introduce and consider some methods and tools that can be used to effectively measure student learning.
