Collaborative Learning Spaces at Missouri University of Science and Technology
Hammons, Angie; Oswald, Lauren Brady
EDUCAUSE Quarterly, v32 n1 2009
The ability to do problem solving is an important concept that educators need to teach their students because that's what they do in the corporate world. When they're sitting in collaborative groups, they have the opportunity to bounce ideas off of each other, complete tasks, and work together effectively. That's the same idea that educators need to be teaching them as they're going through college. These spaces not only give students better access to their instructors and each other, but they bring the technology and tools needed to accomplish tasks, complex assignments, research academic work, right to the students' fingertips. To accomplish this, intentional design of all spaces on campus is important. No longer are classrooms the only learning space on campus; learning takes place anywhere and everywhere, and one needs to be just as intentional with all spaces on campus. This article discusses how the Educational Team at Missouri University of Science and Technology designed their collaborative learning spaces.
