Special Double Session—Are you involved in campus learning space planning, design, or implementation? We’ll discuss how to apply an integrated planning process to align resources and stakeholders, and share tools, examples, and strategies to help tackle your next project. You’ll learn about the Learning Space Rating System (LSRS) to prioritize projects. You’ll hear about how the Flexible Learning Environments eXchange™ (FLEXspace) has evolved and improved through a significant user-centered re-design effort. You'll get hands-on practice using the newly redesigned and mobile friendly FLEXspace 2.0 tool to browse inspirational learning spaces from around the world, search for designs to meet specific requirements, and share your favorites to drive conversations with stakeholders. You'll learn how to use FLEXspace to document and showcase your projects inside and outside your institution. Participants will leave this session with the LSRS worksheet, a FLEXspace account, FLEXspace Idea Boards to organize and share your favorite examples, resources to take to your next planning meeting, and connection with a growing community that includes over 3000 users across 1400 institutions from 44 countries. This session will appeal to professionals involved in educational technology, AV/IT design and integration, campus facilities planning, academic administration and the architectural community.

  • How to apply an integrated planning process to align stakeholders and resources
  • How to use the LSRS scoresheet to prioritize campus projects
