Boulder Digital Works at CU (http://bdw.colorado.edu)
Boulder Digital Works is dedicated to providing a space for people to learn how to learn. Digital technologies are changing everything ?? how we work and play, interact as individuals and groups, and how and what we learn. Yet, too many educational institutions have become museums of what we used to learn at the expense of why and how we learn. We decided to create a place that would do more than remember the past. We wanted to create a place that would lead into the future. We understood that it would have to be different. Boulder Digital Works is an alternative. We develop people who are generative, integrated thinkers, and can work collaboratively. Everything we do evolves from a foundation that combines creativity, technology, and business. People from different disciplines in industry and academe come here to ask questions, share ideas, and solve problems. BDW bridges the widening critical gap between academe and industry, between thinking and doing.

Cheers
