Webinar - Transforming, Sandboxing, Repurposing Learning Spaces for Nurturing Creative Learning, Creative Learners: Lessons Learned from the Learning Spaces Collaboratory Experience

3:30 - 5:00 p.m. EDT

Participants present their ideas in the Spaces of Invention workshop at Stanford University in March 2014

  • Jeanne L. Narum, Principal - Learning Spaces Collaboratory

  • Meredith Bostwick-Lorenzo Eiroa, Associate Director – Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP
  • Leticia Britos Cavagnaro, Deputy Director of the National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation (Epicenter) and Lecturer at Hasso Plattner Institute of Design - Stanford University
  • Russell G. Carpenter, Director, Noel Studio for Academic Creativity and Program Director, Minor in Applied Creative Thinking - Eastern Kentucky University

This webinar will be an opportunity to: 
  • gain insights and practical advice about how to transform and repurpose spaces to nurture the capacity of learners to become agents of their own learning, creative thinkers and problem-solvers, striving explorers, informed trailblazers, risk-takers engaged in out-of-the-box thinking. 
  • learn about a team-based approach to imagining such spaces, capturing the experience of participants in a March workshop (LSC/Epicenter/NCIIA) at the d.school at Stanford. 
  • be introduced to new vocabulary and lenses for exploring how different kinds of on-campus learning spaces can be construed as a "space for creativity," capturing provocative ideas from the  LSC project  on creativity funded by the Sloan Foundation. 
  • be inspired by photos and stories from the field to reimagine how planning happens when there is a shared vision about how learning happens and about the nature and affordances of spaces that serve societal and institutional goals for what students should become. 

Registration fee per institution: $125. This fee includes access to a recording of the webinar. To register and learn more, visit http://pkallsc.org/.
