To promote National Library Week in spring 2013, KSL conducted a quick survey that asked CWRU students to name their favorite part about KSL, as well as what they would change if they could pick one thing. In one week’s time, 150 responses were received. Highlights from the results are summarized below.
KSL facilities have transformed to offer a mixture of social and communal spaces that accommodate changing engagement activities and learning styles. Most noticeably, the first floor has experienced on-going changes over the last year to create a place for people to work, gather and interact.
In fall 2012, renovations were completed on the lower level LL06 classroom in KSL. Renovations included remodeling an existing space with built-in desks, a poor sound system and old technology into a large space that has the flexibility of being divided into three separate classrooms, mobile/magnetic whiteboard walls, mobile tables for different class/meeting configurations, ergonomic chairs and HD technology with telepresence options.
The rooms were ready for spring 2013 semester and feedback solicited from users is highlighted below:
KSL is in a unique position to combine technology, information and personal assistance to provide support for students and faculty. Recent renovations reflect KSL’s focus on increased flexibility to ensure our facilities, both physical and virtual, support academic excellence at CWRU.
