Joan Lippincott, CNI
Please join us for the LSC Webinar: Spaces for Making the Process of Learning Transparent for Faculty at Purdue University on Wednesday, November 6, 2013. 5:00 p.m. EST.
· How research on how learning happens informs space planning, how faculty who experience as learners/researchers in a sandbox space can then translate that experience and research into reshaping pedagogies and spaces in classrooms across the campus.
· How the institutional culture for space planning can be transformed when faculty have access to a “laboratory” space to experiment with innovative pedagogies with flexible furnishings, lighting, layout, and configuration.
Focusing on faculty development is a key strategy in shaping learning environments that are understood and welcomed by faculty—among the prime users of spaces designed to nurture robust learning.
This webinar will be of interest to faculty in all disciplines, directors of centers of teaching and learning, as well as administrators with responsibility for assessing and incorporating technologies into the learning environment.
