Challenges in Technology Implementation for Learning Spaces in Higher Education
Lewis, Bryan; Starsia, Gerald
EDUCAUSE Quarterly, v32 n1 2009
The design and implementation of technology can prove a particularly daunting challenge for campus planners and project designers. Specialization is required for the selection and implementation of technologies including the familiar network, telecommunications, and data-processing functions, and also the more esoteric emerging technology labs and simulation spaces, financial trading rooms, and teleconference centers. These varied learning spaces are vital to the core goal of educating students, yet technology implementation often follows a predictable path--with mixed results. For the McIntire School project, the authors applied some basic tenets throughout the conceptual design, design/development, and implementation phases that addressed many of the common challenges. In this article, they describe some of the lessons they have learned.
