Carleton University is creating a new space to bring educators and students together to share, research and design thanks to $1 million in funding from the Government of Ontario and a matching contribution from the university.
This investment from the province’s Training Equipment and Renewal Fund will support the transformation of the fourth floor of the MacOdrum Library, including the Discovery Centre, into a newly designed space called the Future Learning Lab.
The Future Learning Lab is envisioned as both a physical space and set of programs designed to foster innovation and incentivize student-centred ways of teaching. In addition to fostering student and instructor partnerships, the lab will encourage undergraduate research opportunities and offer innovation grants. It will also provide physical and virtual spaces for instructors to innovate with pedagogical design, as well as enhance study spaces for students.
The development of the Future Learning Lab will occur in two phases, beginning with the space renewal on the fourth floor of the library. Teaching innovation grants and other programming, including student skills development certificates, will follow. The new space is set to be unveiled in fall 2022.
