Introducing FLEXspace: The Flexible Learning Environments eXchange
The Flexible Learning Environments eXchange is an open-access repository populated with examples of learning spaces. It contains high-resolution images and detailed attributes of learning spaces from institutions across the globe. Members of the FLEXspace team will provide an update on this exciting collaborative project and demonstrate how to use it. The database now includes features suggested over the past year by ELI and other constituent organization members. It includes three taxonomies—learning and assessment, A/V integration, and facilities—and enables participants to take a "test-drive" and provide critical feedback. Attendees are encouraged to bring laptops.
Outcomes: Become familiar with the FLEXspace mission as a shared resource * Use laptops (note: mobile access not yet available in beta) to navigate and provide feedback on FLEXspace * Understand the project team's next steps and direction * Understand the synergy between the ELI Learning Space Rating System and FLEXspace, as well as how data and attribute fields will align with and complement efforts
