WIC and EC spaces will be highlighted in a Learning Spaces Collaboratory (LSC) webinar on January 21 focusing on the role of commons spaces in supporting learning communities. Resources for the webinar include a 5-page profile on WIC and EC spaces, which appeared in a larger LSC Guide published in fall 2013. Facilitators will draw on resources in the LSC Guide and lessons learned on several academic campuses.
The LSC is a national organization that focuses on research and practices that shape effective undergraduate learning environments. Members include academics, architects, and national leaders; the LSC Collaborating Partners often host workshops, seminars, and webinars. The LSC’s “Exploring Commons Spaces” webinar runs from 3:30-5pm EST on Tuesday, and you can register via a survey linked from the LSC website.
We are thrilled that WIC and EC continue to attract national attention. In January 2013, the Learning Spaces Toolkit featured us as model spaces, and in December 2012, several articles in the inaugural issue of the Journal of Learning Spaces referenced our work.
