FLEXspace: Flexible Learning Environments eXchange
FLEXspace.org is both an open education (OER) platform to find best practices, detailed attributes/specifications and a community aligned with the SCHOMS mission to promote excellence in teaching and learning practices and environments. FLEXspace is a resource for AV/IT and Systems Integrators, Facilities and Campus Planners, Learning Designers, Faculty Developers, as well as industry experts to help ideate, benchmark, prioritize, plan, design, and assess learning space projects, ensuring alignment of campus spaces with strategic master plans.
Accessing and uploading content to the FLEXspace repository will be demonstrated, along with guidance on using planning and assessment tools, research findings, and more. Specific instructions on using collaborative features (shared Idea Boards, Toolkits, and curated Galleries) will be highlighted. Finally, presenters will demonstrate a quantitative and qualitative data model that harnesses the power of FLEXspace and the EDUCAUSE Learning Space Rating System (LSRSv3) to support stakeholder engagement and integrated learning space planning.
