Please join the TELE Collaborative as we host opportunities to visit and discuss learning space design across the Ithaca College campus throughout the spring. We will explore the innovation of the physical environment and discuss the impact that learning space design can have on teaching, student engagement and learning.   The goal is to solicit ideas from faculty users and multiple units on campus as collaborative stakeholders.  We intend to seek advice and recommendations for future classroom renovation and upgrades.
