Webinar— Exploring common spaces | Art | Scoop.it
On Tuesday, January 21 (3:30 - 5:00 p.m.) , the Learning Spaces Collaboratory presents the first in series of four webinars focusing on the campus as an ecosystem of learning spaces--beginning with attention to common spaces, defined as spaces that are agile and flexible enough to accommodate learners in groups large and small, before, after, and sometimes during scheduled class periods; those welcoming and transparent enough to shape a community of learners; spaces giving students authority to own their learning, their spaces for learning.
Questions to be addressed: What role do common spaces have in the ecosystem of learning spaces? What role do they play in nurturing robust learning communities? What is a "common" space intended to do, to be [what is their job description]? What impact do such spaces have on 21st century learners? How do we know?
The webinar will be moderated by Jeanne L. Narum (LSC) and facilitated by:
