I am pleased to invite you to join in the 1st LSC virtual roundtable, based at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. It will begin at 12:00 p.m. CDT on Saturday November 3, 2018.
For more information, please view the online agenda.
As with past LSC roundtables, this will be a four-hour conversation engaging academics and architects with diverse experiences in shaping spaces for 21st century learners, spaces that enhance institutional distinction.
As with onsite roundtables that the LSC has hosted from 2016, threaded through these four hours will be time for conversations and comments following presentations of institutional stories and discussions about how planning happens. Those onsite at Trinity and those joining virtually will have opportunity to join in these conversations.
All registrants for this virtual LSC Roundtable will receive a copy of the recorded 4-hour Roundtable. It has been designed as a template and prompt for on-campus discussions about the how and why of attending to the physical environment – about engaging faculty, staff, and students in the planning process, about how attention to physical spaces involves and influences campus-wide attention.
The visuals shown in the YouTube agenda indicate the flow of the discussion, spotlighting stories from academics and architects about challenges and opportunities in the process of planning—and lessons learned and thoughts about what next. The final session will be an open-ended opportunity for those gathered at Trinity and those joining us virtually.
