Our Mission and Charge:
Mason’s Learning Environments Group (LEG) examines questions related to classroom design and our learning environments, both formal and informal. A primary goal of this group is to advise the university on the planning and design of learning spaces for future renovation and new building projects, with an eye toward developing flexible, signature spaces that inspire students and faculty to work collaboratively on pressing intellectual and social issues.
In light of continuing evidence of the effectiveness of active and experiential learning strategies, LEG will also work to identify models across the disciplines for how faculty might take full advantage of our signature learning environments. The ideas generated by this group will be shared with the greater Mason community.
