Quiet Revolution: Unlocking the Power of Introverts. Events.educause. Learning Space Rating System. Overview The Learning Space Rating System (LSRS) project provides a set of measurable criteria to assess how well the design of classrooms support and enable active learning activities.
Noting the success of several architectural programs to promote sustainable building design, the LSRS provides a scoring system to serve as an indicator of how well a classroom’s design serves the goal of active learning. The LSRS criteria form the basis for a rating system that will allow institutions to benchmark their environments against best practices within the higher education community. This current version of the LSRS measures formal learning spaces, but future versions will include informal spaces and more specialized spaces.
