How do your formal and informal learning environments support the educational mission and philosophy of your school through environmental factors, furniture, technology, and support tools?

This session will be a panel discussion on the tangible application of educational philosophy in the form of learning environments.

The discussion will touch on:  

  • Classroom learning spaces and specialty furniture (size/shape of rooms, desks vs tables and table shapes, whiteboard paint)

  • Informal learning spaces (Library and study spaces, student landing spaces)

  • Classroom display technology (Smart Board/projectors/LCD displays)

  • Faculty tech support in/out of the classroom (faculty access to tech at home, classroom computers vs display hookups)

  • Student tech in/out of the classroom (1:1 or 2:1 vs computer labs or laptop/iPad carts)
