This coming year, under the theme of "Visioning and Re-Visioning," will be an exciting opportunity to explore the ways in which pedagogical innovation and cutting edge design impact and influence each other. Great cities are often the spawning ground for dramatic educational innovation and revolutionary ideas about the facilities in which people learn. We will explore this tendency through history as well as in current examples. CAE members and participants will be able to evaluate the difference between what in educational design represents a passing trend versus the elements of learning spaces that are of lasting value. As we renew or replace our own educational facilities, we need to create settings where pedagogy can continue to evolve in effective ways.
