Defense Design Studio 2017

Attend a Defense Design Studio.


See for yourself what a culminating Performance Assessment moment looks like.

Envision Education believes that students are ready to succeed in college and in career when they have developed the ability to think like a historian or mathematician, the ability to know and use the leadership skills necessary in college and life, and the ability to reflect about one’s personal journey as a learner. In short, Envision students are able in knowing, doing, and reflecting.

The College Success Portfolio Defense is our capstone activity that pulls knowing, doing, and reflecting into one place, into one moment. It is the final inquiry, the final essential question, the final exhibition – a culmination of four years of work. Akin to a dissertation defense or professional presentation, students stand before a panel of their peers, adult educators, and mentors to demonstrate the depth of their knowing, doing, and reflecting as evidenced by their academic work and self-reflection.

Come and spend some time with Envision students and staff at a Defense Design Studio.
