Learning Spaces Rating System

Thursday, October 17 | 1:30PM–2:15PM
Session Type: Professional Development
The Learning Space Rating System (LSRS) provides institutions with a measure of how their space and support operations encourage active learning. This project has created a set of measurable criteria that assess how physical environments enable a spectrum of active teaching and learning engagements. These criteria form the basis for a rating system that will allow institutions to benchmark their environments against best practices within the higher education community. The LSRS project recently released a beta draft of the standards. Come to this session to hear more and learn how you can get involved in using and improving the beta draft.

Understand the rationale for a learning space rating system. | Understand the structure of the current beta version. | Understand how the scoresheet can be used at your institution. | Know how you can participate in the community input phase of the project.
