Join us for a continuing conversation about how attention to spaces for learning becomes an integral part of institutional planning for the future: A Campus-wide “Space Matters” Culture“space-matters”-culture
The spotlight in this webinar is on the Georgia Institute of Technology, which has a long and treasured history of exploring and realizing learning environments—pedagogical, social, and physical—that nurture the creativity of the entire campus community.

This story is told from the perspective of two senior administrators at Georgia Tech: Howard S. Wertheimer—Director Capital Planning and Space Management & Ameet D. Doshi— Director, Service Experience and Program Design, Subject Librarian for Public Policy. They are joined by an architect for a recent STEM building on campus: Ryan Jones—Lake Flato Architects. Their perspective on what works and lessons learned should be of interest to all stakeholders who are convinced that space matters and are committed to make that happen on their campus. 
Join us to explore:
               How Georgia Tech has established a philosophy of learning as doing, a culture in which space matters. How it sees learning as a place, understands how every project is influenced by and influences the 400 acre campus, how the campus is understood as an ecosystem for learning.
               The current environment for learning and planning for learning at GT—Perspectives of: the chief facilities officer who is teaching a freshman seminar in the new Clough Center; a librarian on the evolution over the years of sandboxing experiments that were the foundation for future planning at GT; an architect involved with a recent STEM project.
               A snapshot into their planning process—about pilot projects, student involvement and input, lessons learned.
               What next steps are being explored to deepen a “space matters” culture at Georgia Tech: how to identify new partnerships, identify and overcome barriers to change; auditing all spaces to determine if and how they make a difference to the experience of learning at Georgia Tech.
               Schedule: Webinars are scheduled from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. EDT.
               Registration fee: Registration is $200 for a single webinar; fee for all four webinars is $700. If you wish to register for all 4, you will receive a copy of the September webinar recording.
