The Learning Spaces Committee at Wake Forest University acts as an advisory group to help dream, design, and collaborate with the Wake Forest community on new and renovated learning spaces grounded in research-based principles and practices.
Committee members represent an inclusive cross-section of the University: faculty and staff from the Center for the Advancement of Teaching, Learning Assistance Center and Disability Services, Facilities, Information Systems, the Registrar, Wake Forest College, ZSR Library, and Schools of Divinity, Business, and Law.
In response to the demand to modernize existing classrooms and learning spaces across campus, the initiative team on Learning Spaces (LS) will provide input to the plan which phases renovations of existing learning spaces and specifies creation of new active learning spaces. The plan will be aligned with academic needs, and synchronized with facilities and capital planning initiatives. The LS is an initiative team that makes recommendations to the Committee on Information Technology (CIT).
The CIT appoints the members of the LS in consultation with the IT Executive Committee (ITEC). Membership should include representatives from the Provost’s office, the Teaching and Learning Collaborative, the College, the School of Law, the School of Business, Library, IS, Facilities, and the Registrar. The IS Assistant Director of Infrastructure Multimedia is an ex-officio member of the team. CIT will appoint a Chair and a Vice Chair of the LS and guide its work.
LS will work in consultation with CIT to develop goals and refine scope of work. Members of the LS will meet quarterly with CIT to report the status of initiatives it has undertaken and make recommendations for the phasing of renovations to campus learning spaces.
