Join the ELI’s Malcolm Brown, director, and Veronica Diaz, associate director, as they moderate this webinar on the Learning Space Toolkit project. The toolkit is a freely available resource designed to support the full life cycle of a learning space design project, from defining the goals and needs, to designing the space, to supporting it. By using the toolkit, institutions will be better equipped to orchestrate the planning process so that learners are better supported and spaces, technology, and services are more effective. Key to the ongoing success of the toolkit is engaging people who are interested in designing effective and innovative learning spaces. In this webinar we will describe the toolkit's goals, what it offers, and its future direction. We are also interested in receiving participant feedback that will help make it an even more useful resource in the future. The toolkit project is made possible with a grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services.
