Theory vs. Bricks and Mortar--Forming, Norming, Storming, and Performing: The CEFPI Multiple Learning and Multiple Intelligence Design Charrette
Robbie, Philip; Pickett, Fran
Educational Facility Planner, v43 n4 p16-18 2009
A charrette (pronounced shuh-ret) is a collaborative planning process that harnesses the talents and energies of all interested parties to create a shared vision and a feasible plan for implementation. The charrette consists of an intense period of design activity where variables are clarified, reasonable limits established and collective decisions made. At the Council of Educational Facility Planners International's (CEFPI) High Performance Schools Symposium held in Tampa in February 2009, conference organizers utilized an interactive presentation style that merged theory and practice using charrettes. The challenge was to engage over 100 individuals with varying experience in educational facility planning and present them with theoretical information on multiple intelligences and learning styles. And then, ask them to integrate the theoretical framework into a real-world school project in just 4.5 hours. This article describes the CEFPI multiple learning and multiple intelligence design charrette.
