Understanding the human experience is essential to successfully adapting campuses for virtual learning. This session will share stories and lessons learned from two institutions regarding their campus adaptations in an effort to improve student retention. We'll showcase research findings and applications on how the switch to virtual learning during the pandemic may result in long-term adaptations to campus spaces. Come learn how you can apply the latest research to your plans for short and long-term campus adaptations to accommodate virtual learning outcomes.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Incorporate tools within your planning process that help you to evaluate where and how students are learning and inform space adaptation for hybrid pedagogy.
  2. Apply your knowledge of changing faculty and student needs to analyze how your institution can better support faculty and student success.
  3. Identify your institution's key drivers for decision-making around equity in hybrid learning pedagogy and in relation to national trends.
  4. Explain how utilization, space studies, curriculum changes, and student feedback inform integrated campus planning development in a virtual learning model.
