EDUCAUSE 2022: Designing Future-Focused Learning Spaces
Leaders at the University of Texas at San Antonio looked at today's modern learning environment and came up with three distinct classroom personas, adapting existing rooms to accommodate in-person, hybrid, HyFlex and fully remote teaching. Their growing program was on display at the 2022 EDUCAUSE annual conference where they shared what spurred their decision to create the personas, what technology went into their development and what they're doing to make sure faculty members get the most out of the spaces.
