Brokering Future Learning Opportunities: Theoretical and Practical Considerations for Linking Youth to Out-of-School Time Opportunities

Tue, April 12, 8:15 to 9:45am, Convention Center, Floor: Level One, Room 103 A

Session Type: Structured Poster Session


In this interactive poster session, we examine how adults or more experienced peers facilitate the cross-setting learning of youth through the concept of brokering, a practice of connecting youth to people, spaces, programs, and information sources in order to provide extended learning opportunities. The purpose of this session is to compare and extend different understandings of brokering by highlighting this emerging area of research, design, and implementation. The poster presenters explore: How is brokering learning conceptualized and for what purpose? Who is brokering and what is being brokered? What does brokering learning look like across settings?
