The American University in Cairo is developing a holistic Learning Spaces Strategic Plan to enhance learning across its general purpose classrooms, Library and informal learning spaces. An initial phase of pilot spaces will enable research and inform iterative design refinement with plan implementation. Early action design were a ‘Sandbox’ for pedagogy experimentation, active learning classrooms, dual delivery classrooms and outdoor classrooms. This Plan is being implemented in stages which will be highlighted and shared. We will share highlights about breadth of the Plan, focus on inception and design of early pilots fast-tracked to address challenges raised by Covid-19.
