Learning Space Toolkit Community Feedback Session

Tuesday, February 14 | 2:30PM–4:30PM | Grand Ballroom Foyer
Session Type: ELI
Help shape an online toolkit for planning, operating, and evaluating technology-rich informal learning spaces. This freely available online resource is being developed by North Carolina State University, Brightspot, and DEGW and will contain sections on the process, needs assessment, services, technology, spaces, and overall "assembly instructions" (www.learningspacetoolkit.org). During this interactive session, we will provide a brief project update, facilitate breakout sessions to gather feedback on the tools and resources under development, and discuss how institutions can beta-test tools and contribute to the effort to build a useful community resource.

Learning Objectives:
*Learn about the components of the learning space toolkit such as resources, tools, and case studies and how they can help institutions plan, operate, and evaluate technology-rich informal learning spaces
*Learn about how peer institutions plan, operate, and evaluate learning spaces, including typical practices, resources consulted, and lessons learned
*Learn how to create community-based tools and resources by using the learning space toolkit as a model for conducting user research, open development, community feedback, and iterative development
