The Learning Space Rating System

Wednesday, October 01 | 5:30PM–6:20PM | Meeting Room W303
Session Type: Professional Development

The Learning Space Rating System project provides a set of measurable criteria to assess how well the design of classrooms supports and enables active learning activities. Launched in the summer of 2013 with a beta version, the project released the first official version in the summer of 2014. In this session, attendees will be introduced to the revised version of the LSRS criteria and also have the opportunity to work with LSRS team members to apply the credit specifications to rate various kinds of learning spaces.

OUTCOMES: Develop an understanding of the idea underlying LSRS and how it works * Address how the LSRS can be applied to classroom management and planning * Gain experience to apply the LSRS criteria to several real-world classroom learning spaces
