Filene announces experiential learning colloquium
MADISON, Wis. (12/4/12)--The Filene Research Institute will offer a free experiential learning colloquium on financial literacy, thanks to support from CO-OP Financial Services and the National Credit Union Foundation.  

The program will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. CT Jan. 31 in Atlanta. It is is designed to explore the foundations of financial literacy and help credit unions ensure that the money they spend reaching out to members helps members to make better financial decisions.

Presenters and topics at the colloquium include:

  • Professor Lou Centini, Darden School of Business, University of Virginia. Centini will explore the theoretical foundations of experiential learning. He will offer examples of experiential learning and its application in helping make better personal finance decisions.
  • Tim Vandenberg, Young Tycoons: A Better Way to Teach Math. Vandenberg, an accomplished Monopoly player and sixth-grade teacher, will explain how he uses gamification to bring a record number of disadvantaged students past state standards and teaches them to love math along the way.
  • Jason Young, Revolutionizing Financial Capability through Mobile Gaming. Young, the founding partner of Mindblown Labs, will discuss how the app revolution makes it easier and more fun than ever to learn financial life skills.
  • Life Simulation, National Credit Union Foundation. The Life Simulation experience is designed to help credit union employees, volunteers and leaders understand what it might be like to live in a typical low-income family trying to survive from month to month.
