Learning & Scholarly Technologies Spark Sessions offer fresh ideas, practical advice, and hands-on assistance to University of Washington faculty and staff who are interested in using information technology for teaching and learning, research and digital scholarship, or distance education. The sessions provide a forum where UW faculty members and national experts share their perspectives and offer strategies and resources to help the campus community better integrate technology into classroom teaching, research projects, online courses, and digital scholarship.
Spring Quarter Sessions
Campus Learning Spaces--Research Findings & Real Applications at the UW
Wednesday, April 7, 2010
1:30 - 3:00 p.m.
Odegaard Library, Room 220
How do students currently use computing centers, libraries, cafes, study areas, and other informal learning spaces at the UW to meet their studying and computing needs? How can such spaces be enhanced to better support students?
At this session, Janice Fournier from Learning & Scholarly Technologies and Ann Whitney from UW Libraries will share research findings that address these questions. Additionally, Scott Macklin from the College of Education and Jill Morelli from the School of Medicine will discuss the innovative learning space projects their departments have implemented to support students.
Following the session, LST will hold an open house showcasing technology spaces in Odegaard Library.
LST's findings discussed during the session are available in the report below under "Session Resources." Note: If you encounter errors when opening the report, Right-click on the link and save the file to your computer before opening.
