Descriptions of the Innovations Showcase Presentations, Assessment Workshop and Academic Spaces Tour The Innovations Showcase features a series of visual presentations by architects, librarians and corporate stakeholders who have successfully worked with libraries, college and universities to develop academic learning spaces. The showcase will offer real-world innovations and ideas for you to take home, and an opportunity to speak with colleagues with experience in developing and working in academic learning spaces.
The Space Assessment Workshop is a hands-on opportunity for attendees to learn and practice a variety of assessment techniques successfully used in academic space planning, including charrettes, personas and two types of photo studies. The workshop will include case studies with students as mock subjects, allowing attendees to practice each technique in a small group setting. Attendees will also develop student personas as a method to communicate study results to administrators and other stakeholders. Presented by: Rebecca Bichel, Associate Director for Public Services, FSU Libraries Kirsten Kinsley, Assessment Librarian, FSU Libraries Susan Whitmer, Education Solutions Integrator, Herman Miller
The Academic Spaces Tour offers participants an opportunity to explore a variety of academic learning spaces. •
Tallahassee Community College’s Learning Commons is a comprehensive, integrated learning center providing learning assistance and resources to students in the areas of math, science & communications.
The Albert J. and Judith A. Dunlap Student Success Center opened in 2008 and includes 47,000 square feet of classrooms, meeting rooms, and computer labs. It is home to the FSU Center for Leadership and Civic Education and the Career Center.
Opened in Spring 2002, the Maguire Medical Library at the Florida State University College of Medicine is the first academic medical library created in the 21st century.
FSU’s Strozier Library houses two distinct commons. The Scholars Commons opened in December of 2008 with staffing, services, resources and spaces developed specifically for faculty and graduate students. The Learning Commons opened in March 2010 with staffing, services, resources and spaces to support undergraduate student success. Both developments are grounded in ethnographic research of user needs. FSU Libraries has a unique staffing model, with audience-based departments rather than functional departments.
