This micro-symposium is the first of a two-part series titled Transformations + Transactions: Reinventing Discovery and Delivery in Higher Education.
The ever-changing ways in which students learn and engage, combined with new delivery models, pose great opportunities for campus planners to “Transform + Transact” to make a difference on their campuses. In a two-part series, the SCUP Pacific Region Micro-symposia will explore strategies for realizing financially viable projects that serve current and future learn/live modalities. Part 1, “Transformations,” investigates how learning environments can best support innovative, supportive, and experiential learning. Part 2, “Transactions,” looks at incentivized agreements that inform a variety of successful multi-agency or inter-organizational alliances, from public/public to public/private. Join us in this two-part discussion with industry leaders who are exploring these new educational and delivery models and find out how to embed transformation and innovative transactions into your integrated planning frameworks.
Part 1 - Transformations: Putting Student Engagement First
Student engagement is one of the most relevant metrics for evaluating a meaningful learning experience—a goal made possible by integrated planning that puts the student experience at the core. As learning modalities evolve to include experiential, informal, interdisciplinary, and social learning, so must the inventory expand to support what, where, and how students learn. Join us for a conversation with game changers who are rethinking ways to support students through innovation in campus planning, curriculum, and coaching. Their insights will inform an integrated planning process that puts the student experience at the heart of the plan.
List ways to put the student experience at the heart of the plan.
Describe how learning environments can support innovative, supportive, and experiential learning, and prioritize specific improvements based on performance outcomes and available resources.
Describe how various learning modalities are supported by a recently developed, state-of-the-art learning environment and explain how the physical and technological inventory has expanded to support what, where, and how students learn.
Describe how unique physical spaces within Stanford University are experiments to support the ever-changing ways in which students learn and engage, and how these spaces are combined with new delivery and instructional models centered around entrepreneurship, design thinking, and the social network.
