Mgr, Learning Space Support

The Learning Spaces Initiative at Princeton University aims to overhaul educational spaces on campus, keep Princeton on the leading edge of evolving pedagogies and learning styles, provide continuity in user experience, and engage students. Susan Collins sets out academic and technological program drivers and what it has taken to put the plan in motion. She shares the transformational results to-date in terms of technology standardization, approaches in furniture and lighting collaborations, along with flexibility strategies to raise space efficiency and effectiveness. She outlines an ongoing refresh and upgrade cycle for classroom technologies – a game-changer for faculty and students to enhance teaching and learning – including decision-making processes, staffing, and project execution.
