Abstract/Description

The pandemic has brought about great change in educational practices, especially in physical learning spaces. Things aren’t the way they used to be (in the classroom). This session will be an open dialogue about things we’ve learned as we rethink how the physical classroom experience adds (or doesn’t add) to the teaching and learning experience in this new era. We will touch on the value of space prior to the pandemic and what was lost when we went virtual, and we will reassess the importance of physical space in the new “normal” with social distancing and blended learning. How can we do better in the classroom? Or are we ready to leave the classroom behind?

Goals for Attendees

Gain insights and share thoughts and new perspectives on physical space related to teaching and learning.
