A l’occasion de ses 20 ans, le Louvain Learning Lab, anciennement Institut de Pédagogie universitaire et des Multimédias, a convié le 13 novembre 2015 l’ensemble de la communauté universitaire à prendre part à un exercice prospectif et collaboratif. Près de 100 étudiants, professeurs, membres de l’administration, mentors, tuteurs et citoyens ont répondu à l’appel pour imaginer l’université de demain et élaborer des pistes d’actions pour le futur. Ils ont conçu et présenté des projets audacieux plaçant l’enseignement universitaire au coeur de la société de 2035. Quelles sont les tendances actuelles dans lesquelles se nichent les formes de l’enseignement supérieur en 2035 ? Quelles compétences pour les dirigeants, les enseignants et les étudiants pour à la fois contribuer à l’émergence de l’innovation et participer à son instauration dans les structures ? Telles sont les questions abordées dans ce carnet.

This activity illustrates the interrelationship between science and engineering in the context of extinction prevention. There are two parts to the activity. The first part challenges students to think like scientists as they generate reports on endangered species and give presentations worthy of a news channel or radio broadcast. The second part puts students in the shoes of engineers, designing ways to help the endangered species.

Point of View and Perspective on the American Dream
Unrestricted Use

Rating

In the first bend of this unit, students will closely read multiple perspectives on the “American Dream” in
order to collect information to use and integrate that information into an evidence-based perspective.
Students will examine primary and secondary source documents to make informed decisions about
what information to collect that may inspire their writing about “The American Dream.”

In the second bend of this unit, students will engage in a short-research process to create a draft of
argumentative speech on the “American Dream” with a specific purpose, audience, and tone in mind.
They will use their inquiry research questions from bend one to begin analyzing search results and citing
and gathering relevant, accurate, and credible information.

Rating

In this project, you will explore a real-world problem, and then work through a series of steps to analyze that problem, research ways the problem could be solved, then propose a possible solution to that problem. Often, there is no specific right or wrong solutions, but sometimes one particular solution may be better than others. The key is making sure you fully understand the problem, have researched some possible solutions, and have proposed the solution that you can support with information / evidence.Begin by reading the problem statement in Step 1. Take the time to review all of the information provided in the statement, including exploring the websites, videos and / or and articles that are linked. Then work on steps 2 through 8 to complete this problem-based learning experience.

In this activity, learners use a simple trick of perspective to dress friends in tiny cutout clothing. Learners make tiny pants out of card stock and tape them to the end of a stick. Then, learners hold them in front of a friend standing in the distance so that it looks like the friend is wearing the tiny pants. Learners can take photos and post them on the site's Flickr page. Use this optical illusion activity to discuss depth perception.

Vertical Height of the Atmosphere
Read the Fine Print
Rating

This is a lesson about the vertical dimension of the atmosphere and includes four activities. Activity 1 Introduces concepts related to distance, including length and height and units of measurement. Students are asked to make comparisons of distances. In activity 2, students learn about the vertical profile of the atmosphere. They work with a graph and plot the heights of objects and the layers of the atmosphere: troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, thermosphere, and exosphere. In activity 3, students learn about other forms of visual displays using satellite imagery. They compare images of the same weather feature, a hurricane, using two different images from MODIS and CALIPSO. One image is looking down on the hurricane from space, the other looks through the hurricane to display a profile of the hurricane. Activity 4 reinforces the concept of the vertical nature of the atmosphere. Students will take a CALIPSO satellite image that shows a profile of the atmosphere and use this information to plot mountains and clouds on their own graph of the atmosphere. The recommended order for the activities is to complete the first two activities on day one, and the second two activities on day two. Each day will require approximately 1 to 1.5 hours.

Students learn about archives and primary sources as they research original historical documents. While preparing an imaginative first-person account as if witnessing an historical event, they learn to appreciate the value of the first-person, eye-witness account and understand its limitations. Note: The literacy activities for the Mechanics unit are based on physical themes that have broad application to our experience in the world — concepts of rhythm, balance, spin, gravity, levity, inertia, momentum, friction, stress and tension.
