The Challenges of Learning Space Assessment: Lessons from the Front Lines - Sponsored furniture provided by Herman Miller, Bronze Partner

Monday, February 09 | 4:00PM–4:45PM | California A, Second Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
The difficulty of developing a good research design to evaluate new learning spaces means that many institutions struggle with how to evaluate the impact of spaces they have newly constructed or renovated. This session will bring together the facilitators of last year's three-part ELI "Evaluating Learning Spaces" preconference workshop with members of two campus teams who attended the workshop. The campus team representatives will share the progress they have made in the year since the workshop and describe the challenges, successes, and lessons learned they encountered as they put their knowledge and plans into action.

OUTCOMES: Better understand what might be possible to evaluate in the contribution of spaces to student learning * Better understand what constitutes a good research question * Identify types of expertise for an assessment team
