Vliet will present on Friday, March 2 in the Design Build Session.
Assistant Professor Ellie Abrons will present her paper, “Practice Sessions: A Model for Intensive, Engaged Learning Experiences.” Abrons “presents [Taubman College] Practice Sessions as a model for supplementing traditional, semester-long, individual studio projects with intensive bursts of collaborative design that expose students to the problems of practice and broader educational contexts.” The presentation will be part of the Academy / Practice Session on Friday, March 2.
