What are innovation spaces, and do you need one? - eCampus News

What are innovation spaces, and do you need one? - eCampus News | Learning spaces and environments | Scoop.it

Thanks to more broad access to the internet, as well as “breakthroughs” in manufacturing, innovation has been democratized, says a new research report by HermanMiller, in turn creating a “new driver for the economy.”

7 Things You Should Know About the Learning Space Rating System | EDUCAUSE.edu | Learning spaces and environments | Scoop.it

The Learning Space Rating System is a tool developed by leading community experts for rating formal learning spaces to determine how well their design affords and encourages active learning. The LSRS includes 50 questions organized into six sections, and colleges and universities use the LSRS as part of updating existing learning spaces and building new ones. The LSRS provides a clear-cut list of items to consider and measure, and it can open discussions internally and externally regarding various approaches to learning and the ways in which spaces can be designed to support those approaches.
