Scaling Active Learning Affordances Campus-Wide

Scaling Active Learning Affordances Campus-Wide

2017 Past Presentation

Faculty need the freedom to incorporate active learning teaching methods into classes across the curriculum, but sometimes only a lesson or an hour at a time. Rating classrooms on their ability to support different teaching methods, along with their convertibility between configurations, can help faculty choose and be assigned to rooms that best fit their needs. Enabling classrooms for active learning and convertibility is as much about the room’s shell, infrastructure, and approach to furnishings as much as it is about technology.

Redefining the Teaching and Learning Experience

Redefining the Teaching and Learning Experience

2017 Past Presentation

Sharply raising enrollment and changing curricular needs challenged Oregon State University (OSU) to seek new learning space solutions. Planning for pedagogical diversity and a significant increase in informal learning space resulted in the Learning Innovation Center (LINC); seating 2200 learners in 17 widely varied classrooms including a 600 seat 360 degree teaching-in-the-round lecture Arena. This workshop explores how these challenges were addressed and assessed now that LINC has completed the first year in operation. Participants will work hands-on with the concepts and options for meeting contemporary teaching and learning needs through creative design.

Navigating Constraints and Building Support for an Interactive Lecture Hall

Navigating Constraints and Building Support for an Interactive Lecture Hall

2017 Past Presentation

Higher education institutions have begun to re-imagine traditional lecture halls in ways that can better support active learning methods, but large classroom renovations are complex and require buy-in from a variety of campus stakeholders. In this session you will learn how the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill worked within numerous constraints to transform an aging lecture hall into an active learning environment.

Learning From Learning Spaces: How a Student-Centered Focus Benefits Both Academics and Design Professionals

Learning From Learning Spaces: How a Student-Centered Focus Benefits Both Academics and Design Professionals

2017 Past Presentation

We often think of collaborative learning in terms of classroom interactions, but it plays an important role in creating and adapting learning spaces, as well. In this session, we will explore how collaboration between students, academics and design professionals has led to insights into how students use classrooms and informal campus spaces.

Redesigning Higher Education @ ASU: Immersion + Access

Redesigning Higher Education @ ASU: Immersion + Access

2017 Past Presentation

Presentation by Sean Hobson and Wellington Reiter from ASU. Within the current state of higher education, the US has stalled in terms of degree completion and millions of students are left with lower prospects for employment and limited options to fund their education. As we address the urgent need to design and perfect models that expand the numbers and types of students that universities invest in, we need to think beyond attracting, retaining and graduating students from the traditional pools students and design new ideas, new tools and evolve how we provide access to affordable education. In this interactive opening keynote, uncover the ways in which two prominent university figures --and pioneers in Arizona State University’s innovation story--are reshaping higher education design through a physical and digital nexus.

A Strategy for Catalyzing Campus-Wide Attention to the Future of Learning Spaces

A Strategy for Catalyzing Campus-Wide Attention to the Future of Learning Spaces

2017 Past Presentation

Presentation by Jeanne Narum, Principal, LEARNING SPACES COLLABORATORY. Increasingly, academics and architects are attuned to the growing research demonstrating the link between attention to the physical learning landscape and achieving sustainable undergraduate learning experiences. This changing context requires a future-focused approach to planning learning spaces, embracing research on how learning happens and what constitutes as a learning space. Drawing on years of research and stories from the frontlines, this forum is designed as an opportunity to share the roundtable experience – questions examined, explored, and lessons learned in planning the future of learning spaces – formal and informal, and to all disciplines.
