EDUCAUSE 2010 Midwest- Learning Space Workshop

I presented the workshop "Navigating Your Path When Designing Effective Learning Spaces" at the 2010 EDUCAUSE Midwest Regional Conference. The session looked at current trends worldwide regarding learning space design, but also core concepts such as learning space assessment, design consideration, learning commons, furniture, podium design, teaching and learning, sustainability, and Web 2.0 in the design.

Participants broke out in groups to discuss their specific opportunities and challenges in their own project design and implementation. General trends emerged from their individual projects that had universal implications to the group. Attendees came from throughout the Midwest, with one attendee from New Zealand.
