Here is a 5-minute video recorded at the DigCurV Final Conference which took place on the 6th and 7th of May 2013 in Florence, Italy, in which several academic and research professionals in the fields of curation and preservation of digital objects (such as databases, photos, videos, websites, etc) share their views on  what exactly is digital curation, and why it matters.

Pippa Yeoman's insight:

This is a blog post written about the space in which I conducted 549 hours of observation in 2012. It's an interesting read and Anne makes some good points about acoustic hygiene.

 

It took me a day or two to acclimatise and a month or so to stop focusing on how these elements were managed - what excites me most, however, is not how these elements were managed but the affordances of this well curated space in motion.

Offering one's considered opinion - telling others what you found interesting and why you think it's important in a format that is richer than a tweet and less dense than a formal publication.

Cutting-edge Open Concept Engineering Classroom at Iowa State University

Cutting-edge Open Concept Engineering Classroom at Iowa State University | learner amongst the learning | Scoop.it

A Learning Spaces Collaboratory Webinar, Wednesday, January 30, 2013 | 4:00 p.m. EST

(Webinar will last about 1 hour)

Registration fee per institution: $100

To register, please fill out the online survey form.

Facilitator:

Dr. Richard Wlezien, Professor and Vance and Arlene Coffman Endowed Department Chair in Aerospace Engineering– Iowa State University

 

Featuring:

The new, open-concept learning space accommodating up to 120 students for the Introduction to Aerospacecourse.

What were the goals for the planning?

To move the introductory class from its current, distant place on the other side of campus into Howe Hall, the home of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering-LAS Distance Learning.To accomplish this migration as quickly and efficiently as possible

How did it happen?

Taking over a space tucked in a large alcove under the Howe Hall atrium stairs, a former go-to-spot for nappingConnecting to institutional initiatives (support) for piloting new generation classroomGetting $250,000 from internal funds.

What was achieved?

An adaptation of the ‘next-generation’ classroom concept—where technologies and flexible arrangements of equipment and students are conducive to a participatory, interactive learning experienceA greater sense of ‘participatory learning,’ by those doing the learning and by those observing that doing.’An academic interpretation of spaces in which real astrophysicists work, including those that Dr. Wlezien experienced while he was at NASA.

Learning outcomes for this webinar, similar to those for recent LSC webinars, include how to orient a community in thinking in a new way about learning spaces and how to focus their attention, secure their support. This is a newly renovated space, so pre-post assessments are not yet possible, yet the final learning outcome will address issues such as faculty response, student response, next steps.

Pippa Yeoman's insight:

Recurrent themes in the way in which we refer to spaces for learning: open space, distant space, home space and migrating across space into what had been a disused space which was later colonised as a sleeping space.

 

Recurrent attributes: flexible, participatory spaces which mimic the real world.
