CEU #1: LIBRARY AND LEARNING COMMONS
Presented by Jami Moyer, Steelcase
HOW CAN WE RETHINK AND REMAKE LIBRARY SPACES TO IMPROVE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES?
Libraries are the academic heart of a campus. Today, these spaces not only serve as a source for information, but also as places for students to collaborate on team projects, connect socially and create new work. As evolving technology and pedagogies shift the needs of students, libraries and learning commons must adapt to an ongoing process of learning, teaching and discovery. However, the library’s transformation to a multi-dimensional space is not always easy.
Observations from Steelcase researchers gleaned insights into how libraries are evolving. They learned that intentional design and a deep understanding of student behaviors result in spaces that bolster the entire spectrum of student needs – from team spaces and open areas, to places for individual focus and study. Creating a rich ecosystem of spaces better supports and facilitates the holistic process of building student success. In this course, you will learn about the demands facing libraries today, and the characteristics of the new library that responds to those demands. You will also discover how a palette of place can support a diversity of behaviors, encourage students to take ownership over their learning, and blur the line between social and academic interactions.
Join us in rethinking library spaces to engage and empower all students to guide their own learning process and success

CEU #2: NEW APPROACHES TO FACULTY SPACES
Presented by Scott Murlowski, Steelcase
THE IMPORTANCE OF FACULTY WORK
Faculty impact the core of both two-year and four-year institutions. They help mold campus culture and university identity, influence the degree to which students engage and thrive, participate in institutional governance, and define the quality of the university’s instruction. At four-year institutions, they’re typically responsible for securing funding and conducting high-quality research as well. The work they do provides essential services to colleges and universities, and faculty need workspaces that support their work in order to be successful.
