Learning Resources

Where planning comes together. T​he power of SCUP is its community. We learn from one another, sharing how we’ve achieved success and, maybe more importantly, what we’ve learned from failure. SCUP authors, produces, and curates thousands of resources to help you prepare for the future, overcome challenges, and bring planning together at your college or university.

Creating Adaptive Learning Environments

A health professions building project at Central Michigan University provides focus for a theoretical and practical discussion of effective planning to optimize human, spatial, and digital connections for learner-centered environments.

From Volume 32 Number 2 | December–February 2003

Abstract: Educational expectations mandated by contemporary health care practice have expanded dramatically during the last decade. The Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow College of Health Professions at Central Michigan University has responded to this challenge through the creation of powerful pedagogical environments in its newly constructed health professions building. Active, immersive learning environments have been designed that will involve students in educational experiences organized to optimize learning opportunities for diverse types of learners. These unique environments are configured to foster self-directed learning while monitoring effectiveness and adapting the educational experiences to the learner. This article communicates key strategic and tactical planning issues from the leadership’s perspective and offers tactical implementation required to advance this vision.
