I was very excited to be invited to share DEGW’s thinking about the corporate workplace at a conference about “Future Learning Environments – How Space Impacts on Learning” held at the Nobel Forum of the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden on the 3-5th June.  The presentations and discussion focused on inter-professional education in the medical field. The demand for change is driven by the need to challenge the misalignment between specialized medical buildings and spaces and the growing need to enable team based inter-disciplinary and inter professional learning.

The Learning Space Toolkit is an IMLS-funded project to develop a web-based collection of tools, references, and resources for planning, evaluating, and operating technology-rich informal learning spaces. The toolkit will enable campus administrators, space planners / designers, facility managers, and campus experts such as library and IT professionals to envision needs for space, technology, and services and then plan for how best to meet those needs.

We are conducting a brief survey of potential users to gather feedback on priorities for the tools we are planning to develop. The survey is organized by the six sections within the toolkit (Roadmap, Needs Assessment, Space Types, Services, Technology, and Assembly instructions), offering an opportunity to rate the importance of the content planned for each and let us know if anything is missing.

It will take approximately 10mins to complete and your input will be aggregated and anonymized, with your name/institution only used for response tracking purposes.

Take the survey here.
