The Flexible Learning Environments eXchange (FLEXspace) + LSRSv3—Free Tools to Elevate Campus Learning Spaces
FLEXspace.org, the Flexible Learning Environments eXchange, is an OER platform and one-stop shop for best practices, detailed examples and specs, and a community dedicated to improving campus planning and learning spaces around the world. Integration of the Learning Space Rating System & FLEXspace helps teams benchmark, plan, design, and assess learning space projects, and encourages highly effective use of advisory groups to prioritize and align campus spaces with strategic master plans. Effective guidance is key to faculty endorsement to executive investment, while encouraging greater synergy across disciplines and support staff. This session summarizes LSRS Version 3.0 integration into FLEXspace, tours new collaborative FLEXspace features, then demonstrates use of a quantitative and qualitative data model to walk participants through an easy-to-replicate planning pathway regardless of curricular focus. Participants will learn how to tap into FLEXspace to collaborate, share and find resources to ideate, plan, benchmark, and assess learning spaces. Participants will drive the direction of some presentation details through frequent, informal polling, and will learn how to connect with 6,000+ FLEXspace members from over 70 countries, including AV/IT and systems integrators, facilities and campus planners, learning designers, faculty developers, industry experts, and more.
