Innovators are REdesigners of Learning Spaces

Big Idea: How might we Redesign space to Redesign teaching and learning?


  • Be Fully Present
  • Bring a Creative Commons Mindset
  • Adopt a beginner’s mindset
  • W.A.I.T. Why am I talking?
  • Take Risks and Fail Forward
  • Make Learning Visible

Driving Questions

How might we create learning spaces that reflect the needs of our students?
How might we reflect on our prototypes from our last day together?
How might we share our learning in a collective way to inspire other redesigns?



8:30 Coffee and networking

8:45 Introductions, Agenda and Deliverables for the day

8:50 Reflecting on our project pitch
This gets us..
– to gather insights learned from our project pitch on Day 1
– to encourage the mindset of the environment supporting the learning

“What traits of learners were being supported?”
“What needs of students (individual and universal) were considered?”
“My teaching has changed in this way….”
“Some new learnings I have are ….”

9:10 FishBowl feedback: In groups
Presenter: 3 minutes
share your story with pictures/artifacts/reflections. Audience takes notes in Eavesdropper tool to share in next section. What resonated for me was… Ideas they might consider are…  I might need more information about… A person, place or program that might enrich their design is..
Audience: 7 minutes
to discuss what they heard in the presentation. Take turns sharing what you liked, and what resonated with you. Also share any “wonders and what ifs” they may want to consider. 
Audience and presenter: 5 minutes discuss different insights and exchange notes. After listening in on the conversations about their school, share something you’d like to follow up on, something that struck a chord or a next step you might have picked up.

Repeat 15 minute sequence for all participants in your group.

10:30 – 11:00  Bio break

11:00 Sharing our journey
Video documentation – design with the storyboard tool
Other means (twitter moments, #rvscribs)
Visual board

12:30 GASP
This gets us..
– to offer insights and gather inspiration from other’s documentation

Continue designing based on collective feedback and insights gathered.

1:00 Have a great weekend!
