This weekend, the Education quote arrives from the careful reading of one of my Engineering graduate students.
“A design context provides learners with an opportunity to be generative, reflective, and adaptive in their thinking as they engage in activities of planning, making, and evaluating a device, system or process.” (Brophy, et al., 2008, p.371)
