    As educators who support connected learning experiences for our students, we often struggle to describe what we think are the deepest and most resilient learning outcomes that go beyond content mastery and skill development. Researching connected learning also involves similar challenges. We are beginning to develop research tools for documenting the features of connected learning environments, and capturing student experiences of social connection, self-expression, relevance, and interests that are at the core of connected learning. We will reflect on our ongoing research on connected learning, and offer a student survey tool that faculty can use to get at some of these broader outcomes.

    Presenters will take questions via Twitter hashtag #ccourses
