Rating the Learning Space Rating System

Monday, February 03 | 4:45PM–5:30PM | Belle Chasse
Session Type: Professional Development

The ELI announced the Learning Space Rating System (LSRS) project in August 2013. This initiative has created a set of measurable criteria that assess how physical environments enable a spectrum of active teaching and learning engagements. In this session, community members from our review team, all learning space experts who have worked closely with the current beta version, will report on their experience, discuss what they see as the future opportunities and challenges for the project, and situate the LSRS effort in the context of best practices in learning space design.


OUTCOMES: Understand the purpose and outlines of the LSRS as a contribution to best practices for learning space design * Understand how successful the beta LSRS is judged to be by learning space experts who have applied it on their campuses * Judge the potential usefulness of the LSRS on your campus
