Got your attention? We thought so. Many campuses have dedicated 25-30% of space to offices -- far exceeding the 10-15% typically dedicated to instructional space. These numbers are unsustainable; something has to give. Session leaders demonstrate new strategies for re-envisioning faculty offices that are more flexible, collaborative, affordable, and better utilized. They examine workspace planning and design solutions at University of Nebraska that are enabling a shift between private focused work and collaboration with peers, boosting engagement with students, improving adjacencies, and creating more dynamic and productive interactions. They profile strategies for breaking one-size-fits-all and hierarchy-based office models, and they deliver lessons learned.
