In response to expanded discussions (and calls for proposals) of projects that take an ecosystems approach to education improvement, this webinar will share three distinct ways of conceptualizing ecological views of learning, which originated with Kurt Lewin and, later, Urie Bronfenbrenner. Bronwyn Bevan and Philip Bell, from the Research+Practice Collaboratory, will look at theory and examples of cross-institutional approaches, cross-setting approaches developed by the LIFE Center, and connected learning approaches developed by the Connected Learning Research Network, and discuss implications for project design and evaluation.
