EDUCAUSE review onlineEDUCAUSE review online


  • Chris Johnson and Cyprien Lomas
    By focusing on design principles grounded in deeper learning principles, in what makes successful teaching and learning, a campus can revolutionize the design process to create learning spaces that meet the needs of both faculty and students.
  • Carole C. Wedge and Thomas D. Kearns
    A strategic design process that identifies space needs and analyzes possible solutions, functionality, and costs allows campus planning groups and architectural designers to take a fresh look at utilization, collaboration, flexibility, and adaptability to cost-effectively create institutional learning spaces.
  • Phillip D. Long and Stephen C. Ehrmann
    This discussion of the inadequacies of traditional classrooms, of ideas that break with these traditions, and of suggested areas for the design team to keep in mind can help campuses plan pioneering, rather than imitative, learning spaces for the future.
