The 2009 CEFPI NorthEast Regional Conference is being held on May 3-5 in New Brunswick, NJ. This year's conference theme is "Schools on the Edge". On May 3, John Sole, Founder of Guerilla Educators and David Schrader, CEO, SchraderGroup Architects will present a major breakout session called, Educational Facility Design and Project Based Learning; "The Real Connection". At the session, we will demonstrate how to use Project Based Service Learning to integrate the design and construction process directly into the classroom to achieve curricular and social outcomes which provides a methodology for ALL students to perform at rigorous academic and civic levels regardless of demographic. The case will also be made for incorporating students in the conceptual design process, beginning with the charrette. This student involvement in the design process gives educational facilities planners an essential perspective to design more effective teaching and learning spaces.
