SCUP
 

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.

Student-Guided Facilities Planning at UVA

True Partnerships Between Students, Administrators, and Consultants

We will show how the planning and design process at the University of Virginia's (UVA) Student Activities Building made students a co-equal partner, used social science tools to identify what students valued, and amplified students' ability to guide design.
Abstract: How can we authentically engage students to make a positive impact on their environment? We will show how the planning and design process at the University of Virginia's (UVA) Student Activities Building made students a co-equal partner, used social science tools to identify what students valued, and amplified students' ability to guide design. You will learn how to engage students at your institution by applying discovery techniques, design thinking, journey mapping, and purposeful facilitation techniques to traditional programming and design problems.

Researching Lead Users to Predict the Future

Lead users represent the future that’s already here. Let them be your crystal ball the next time you face a forward-thinking planning project.

From Volume 46 Number 3 | April–June 2018

Abstract: Have we heard from enough people? Sometimes leaders ask this question to seek consensus or in the hope of making a tough call easy with more data. But this is the wrong question to ask. A better question is, “Have we talked to the right people?” In this article, we discuss how institutions can research their “lead users” whose extreme behaviors today will be the norm tomorrow. Using a case study rethinking Georgia Tech’s library services, spaces, and staffing, we explain who lead users are, how to identify them, how to research them to uncover insights, and how they can champion innovation on your campus.

Learning Space Design for the Ethnically Diverse Undergraduate Classroom

This pilot study was conducted to evaluate how space contributes to the learning outcomes of a demographically diverse class of students at Morgan State University, a Historically Black Institution.
Abstract: Recently, education researchers have emphasized the redesign of learning spaces to better accommodate pedagogical change. In particular, studies have found evidence of the relationship between the built environment and learning outcomes—however, no current studies have deliberately focused on the “minority majority” feature of America’s future student composition.

This pilot study was conducted to evaluate how space contributes to the learning outcomes of a demographically diverse class of students at Morgan State University, a Historically Black Institution. Based on the neurobiological literature on environmental enrichment, the authors hypothesized that an enriched learning environment will correlate with increased student activity (directed movement) and engagement (with other students, with room features) and result in significantly improved learning outcomes for an ethnically diverse student group.
