A studio is a learning experience that combines competency-based education with project/problem-based learning. Every studio starts with a problem frame and ends with a culminating performance-based assessment and an implementation. Studios vary in length, usually lasting between 6-12 weeks.
Studios consist of milestones and stepping stones that are independent but interrelated experiences that lead up to the culminating performance-based assessment. We believe the learning becomes even more meaningful if students are examining real world problems and relevant, interdisciplinary content with the opportunity to implement their learning for an authentic purpose or audience.
