EDUCAUSE Vice President Diana Oblinger will moderate this Web Seminar with Sawyer Hunley and Molly Schaller, in which they will discuss how to assess the effect of learning spaces on teaching and learning.
The impact of learning space on student learning and faculty approaches to facilitate learning has become a topic of interest over the past few years. Learning space is linked to learning through engagement, both theoretically and practically. How do we assess the relationship between learning space, engagement, and learning?
This Web Seminar offers a look at theoretical perspectives, a guide for developing an assessment plan, some specific examples of assessment instruments, and a brief discussion of results from the University of Dayton's assessment of learning spaces. Assessment is reviewed as a cyclical process which should inform our decisions about learning spaces on our campuses.
