Please join the LSC community for webinars in the continuing series on The Ecosystem of Learning Spaces.

February and March webinars focus on classrooms (general assignment, general purpose). Each will:

· give attention to the institutional context

· present the perspectives of diverse members of the academic community—faculty, campus administrators with responsibilities for information technologies, facilities, assessment and/or curricular faculty development, as well as of participating architects

· explore a range of spatial types, illustrated by profiles from the LSC Guide, the LSC archives.

February 19, 3:30 – 5:00pm EST: This LSC webinar engages in discussions about overall campus planning for classrooms, focusing on lower enrollment courses incorporating research-based pedagogical approaches, about assessment of such spaces and their role within the larger ecosystem of learning spaces on a campus.
