Last week I attended the Educause 2010 Annual Conference in Anaheim, CA. Educause is the international organization for information technology in higher education. The annual conference typically attracts 5,000-6,000 people from all over the world. At the conference I presented a poster session on our new Learning Studio. The poster was titled “From 60s Library to Modern Learning Studio.” Naturally, I didn’t discover until after the proposal was accepted that Sprague was built in 1970 so my title was a little misleading, but sounded good! All of the posters were set up in a corner of the giant exhibit hall and the poster presenters were expected to be present for two 1-hour sessions so that attendees could ask questions and interact with the presenters. I had a blast talking to attendees about our new space. I was surprised and gratified at the number of people who stopped to talk, ask questions, and share stories about their own space renovation projects. People were particularly impressed by our amazing folding Nanawall from Germany which allows faculty to close off the classroom space while a class is in session, but still lets us preserve the open floor plan of the Learning Studio.
