  • ELIGIBILITY: Individuals with institutional .edu addresses (or international or other education equivalent) have access to the FLEXspace repository, and thus have the opportunity to upload records to FLEXspace and enter the drawing.

The winner will be announced via email sent out to the FLEXspace community July 8th, 2015.

 Questions about entries:

  • What counts as an Active Learning Space? Nearly any physical campus classroom, maker space, or other learning space might be considered “active” if it contains elements that promote group work, brainstorming areas, and other elements that facilitate student engagement and problem solving.
  • What counts as a complete record? The FLEXspace record you enter must include details in all fields on all three tabs (Learning & Assessment, Technology, and Facilities) – including the comment fields! (If you can’t complete some of the fields, tell us why in the comments!). You may have multiple “records” associated with one “learning space,” so make sure you copy complete data to all associated records.
  • How many chances/records may I enter? Only one record/chance per learning space will be counted towards the drawing. E.g., If you upload 5 photos and documents for “Room AH1120,” that counts as one “learning space” and thus receives one entry into the drawing. If you upload a complete record for another learning space, “Room BAM195,” that counts as a second entry/chance for the drawing.
