The studio learning method we’ve been developing at Georgetown asks students to create authentic products for authentic end-users, not just because that work has the potential to create and impact in the world beyond the classroom, but also because that work, if done well, requires students to engage in deep research and exploration of the project context. It’s a powerful way of learning.
