It's All about Flex-Ability

At Santa Clara University (SCU), Vice Provost for Information Services and CIO Ron Danielson led the design and construction of the campus's 194,251-square-foot Harrington Learning Commons, Sobrato Technology Center, and Orradre Library, a single building opened in March 2008. Danielson and his team were responsible for describing design goals, evaluating and revising proposals, prioritizing implementations, and overseeing installations for the large, multifunction learning commons that would become the intellectual hub of the university. In the process, especially with the vice provost in charge of creating the important building, the campus as a whole learned a new vernacular surrounding the design and use of learning spaces. Above all, they recognized an essential tenet of 21st century learning: New learning spaces need to be flexible and support the collaborative nature of both formal classes and informal student use. This article provides a glimpse inside flexible, collaborative learning at SCU.
