Experiential learning has risen to the forefront of education programs in health sciences, engineering, athletics, robotics, veterinary science, and more, and the pervasive growth of this pedagogy presents a new set of opportunities and challenges for higher education space planning and management. Session leaders examine how simulation-based pedagogy is being driven by the convergence of virtual reality, prototyping, energy efficiency, full-immersion sensory tactics, interdisciplinary approaches, and data harvesting. They demonstrate top planning solutions for creating hands-on and in-situ learning space on campus, including how acoustics, light control, transparency, flexibility, and spatial movement are impacted by the practical constraints of experiential learning spaces.
