20 Years In the Making, A New Building Brings Innovation to Students

As we evolve and become more efficient, so do the spaces around us. Colleges and universities take advantage of the advancements in modern architecture and technology to provide students with improved learning environments.

Another exciting new learning space from SUNY!

“One of the newest buildings paving the way to the future is the all new Science Hall at New Paltz, which held its grand opening at a March 9 ribbon cutting.

Being the first new building in 20 years, the 77,000 square foot Science Hall is helping fill the need to provide students and faculty with innovative learning spaces. The building houses programs in Computer Science, Geology, Physics and Astronomy, Geography, and the AC2 program. The AC2 program is in place to support students in STEM disciplines from underrepresented backgrounds.…….”

Learning Spaces Collaboratory FREE Webinars Start Next Week!

LSCThe upcoming LSC webinar is titled “Strategies for Catalyzing Campus-wide Attention to the Future of Learning Spaces.”

“After participating in the LSC Roundtable at Loyola University, Dean Pamela Scott-Johnson and Professor Carlos Gutierrez explored with their colleagues at California State University Los Angeles the idea of bringing a roundtable to their campus. 20 academics joined five architects in the four-hour discussion, beginning with individual questions and concluding with a short list of questions and ideas to pursue in coming months. This was a roundtable assembled with no major campus facilities projects in the future; it ended with some ambitious ideas about the campus as an ecosystem for learning that capitalized on existing assets – particularly their students, faculty, and urban setting.”

SDSU Live Tour Showcases Active Learning Spaces and Learning Glass

We hope you were able to tune in to the live tour by James Frazee at San Diego State University, second in the new series of live virtual tours of campus learning spaces sponsored by the EDUCAUSE Learning Spaces Constituent Group.

Link to archive of live tour: https://youtu.be/PVz9dpFI5j4 

DescriptionFriday, January 13 at 9am (Pacific Time) San Diego State University’s Director of Instructional Technology Services and Senior Academic Technology Officer, Dr. James P. Frazee, will provide a virtual tour of two of SDSU’s new Learning Research Studios. The ITS Learning Research Studios (LRS) provide innovative learning spaces for faculty to experiment with state-of-the-art instructional technologies and student-centered classroom design. Faculty who teach in the LRS spaces are encouraged to pursue scholarly research related to pedagogical innovations and are supported by ITS staff and a cohort of fellow LRS faculty. One of the LRS spaces being featured on Friday’s tour includes a large Learning Glass (AKA Lightboard) device situated within an active learning classroom. Learning Glass / Lightboard is new technology for delivering and recording lectures that allows instructors to write notes while maintaining face-to-face contact with students. Essentially, it’s a transparent whiteboard paired with a lecture capture system. This studio is also capable of “one-button” recording to a USB device, or automated recording through an integrated Mediasite capture system. Interested in building your own Learning Glass? We will describe the latest build and buy options available today.

And check out FLEXspace for details of both SDSU spaces seen in the tour. These are just a few of the many Learning Research Studios and active learning spaces at SDSU. Search FLEXspace for more spaces at SDSU.
