Classrooms with rows of desks and a blackboard in front are a thing of the past, but how can educators and education companies work together to create environments that truly transform student learning? Drawing from the findings of MDR's report on the impact of learning spaces on student outcomes, this panel explores the creative ways teachers are using new tools, technologies and products to design learning spaces that accelerate achievement and how education companies collaborate with them to develop learning space solutions. Panelists will address the importance of a pedagogical approach to designing spaces driven by learner needs and curriculum.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discover new ways to think about learning space design and the factors that impact it.
  2. Learn strategies for collaborating with educators/education companies for creating spaces that transform learning.
  3. Explore the meaning of a pedagogical approach to designing learning spaces.
  4. Think in new ways about the connection between "where" students learn and learning outcomes.

Creating a dynamic university learning environment that embraces both focus work and collaborative activities can be a challenge. Collaborative space in a classroom setting is often detrimental to focus. But areas outside of the classroom are opportunities to enhance openness and room configurations for spontaneous, interdepartmental interactions. Research shows that a multi-modal pedagog-one that blends several teaching methods and integrates technolog-is the most effective teaching/learning method. This webinar will address best practices for engaging students, faculty and other stakeholders in the planning and development process to create a unique and successful learning and living environment.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Gain understanding of how the design of a space impacts its usability.
  2. Learn how user input on teaching styles is critical to design.
  3. Understand how user engagement in a space can be encouraged.
  4. Awareness of forthcoming trends in teaching styles and space utilization.
