Lasell's annual fall semester showcase of Connected Learning kicked off this week with projects ranging from a video presentation about Lasell athletics to musical performances and research posters representing collaborative classroom work. The symposium concludes in December 7.
The Connected Learning Symposium, held each fall and spring, highlights examples of student work in their field of study through hands-on projects and research.
Among the presentations featured during the fall symposium were:
• a research on voting methods in the 2012 Election,
• a mock murder trial
• a window display of historic student nursing uniforms,
• a presentation on Media, Ethics and Society discussing media conglomerates,
• displays of class calligraphy lettering,
• a presentation on Sports Journalism crisis communications, and
• a musical performance by the Lasell chorus and jazz ensemble as well as a wide variety of other projects.
"The symposium showcase was spectacular - the sessions, exhibits, and performances were educative, entertaining, and inspiring," said Jim Ostrow, Vice President for Academic Affairs at Lasell.
