Future Learning Spaces Summit

Boston, MA, United States

Innovating Higher Education through the Built Environment

The way in which students are consuming information is evolving at the same rate as technology. In a study conducted by Barnes and Noble College looking at GenZ, 51% of surveyed students said they learn best by doing while only 12% said they learn through listening. Without facilities and spaces to accommodate these changes, college institutions will be stuck in the past and will not able to adapt in the competitive environment.

Institutions need to rethink holistically how to prepare students for the future and the best way to deliver that information. By reevaluating the benefits that different spaces deliver to students' learning, colleges can expand education beyond the traditional classroom format to foster an environment of continuous active learning.

The 6th Future Learning Spaces taking place in Boston, MA November 18-20, 2019 will gather teams of university leaders who have created spaces for students and faculty to thrive in. Find out how these universities have created agile, sustainable, and enriching environments for everyone involved on campus.
