Session Table Name: VENEZIA

The goal of this World Café session is to share ideas about making connections between the life and learning experiences of students and the learning experiences in an educational system. By the end of this session, I hope to find the most important question(s) we should be asking and some creative solutions to making these connections.
1. What makes learning experiences meaningful?
2. Is there a need or should it be a goal to make learning experiences meaningful for students?
3. How does an understanding of the knowledge, values, and skills of our students connect to relevancy in learning experiences?
4. How can we determine local knowledge, cultural values, and literacy skills and how can we create learning environments and lessons to create meaning learning experiences? Who are our students? What are their values? What are their experiences?
5. What are the questions we can ask ourselves as practitioners to understand our students?
6. Are the connections between creating meaningful learning experiences different for different groups of learners?
The answer might lie in open pedagogy, in creating learning experiences that value the experiences of the learner and in creating learning experiences that are diverse in knowledge, skills, and creativity.
How does open pedagogy facilitate connections between the experiences of the learner and the learning experiences?
Open education is an important cornerstone of my challenge to create meaningful learning experiences for students. My future project is to continue to find ways of understanding the learning experiences, values, and skills of students in my classes in order to continue to create meaningful learning experiences.
