Challenges with technologies, historical spaces, and resources make it hard to provide the learning spaces new pedagogies require. Harvard University has found a creative solution to these challenges. As the university re-evaluates undergraduate learning environments, a pilot classroom in historic Harvard Hall is the springboard for integrated planning and design processes. We'll discuss our process (including how we used utilization data and stakeholder feedback during decision making), the classroom's design, and how we're using lessons learned to iterate the space.
Learning Outcome 1: Identify campus environmental assets that lend themselves for use in transdisciplinary learning and community building.
Learning Outcome 2: Describe how environmental assets can support sustainable curricular and student experience transformation.
Learning Outcome 3: Outline strategies to engage students, faculty, and staff in institutional transformation.
Learning Outcome 4: Advocate for sustainable infrastructure as a teaching tool and community-building asset.
