Learning Spaces IT Advisory Community seeks members and campus input

Learning spaces, including physical classrooms, blended hybrids like the Ohio University Learning Network (OULN), and fully digital locations, play an important role in Ohio University’s strategic initiatives.

If you would like to help shape the future of learning spaces at Ohio University, consider joining the newly formed Learning Spaces Advisory Community (LSAC). Membership on the LSAC is open to anyone at the University. No prior experience or technical expertise is required. The only qualifications are an interest in the topic and a willingness to share ideas and listen to the ideas of others. 

IT Advisory communities are an important part of the University's IT Governance framework. Through them, OIT will gather data about the University's IT usage patterns and needs. Although an advisory community is not a decision-making body, participants can have a noticeable impact on the larger IT Governance process, including service roadmaps and budget proposals.

The first meeting of the Learning Spaces IT Advisory Community will take place from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm in Alden Library 322 with an online option via Microsoft Teams for regional campus participants and other individuals who cannot attend in person. Drop-ins are welcome, but to get the most out of the experience, we recommend joining the Microsoft Team devoted to this topic: 

  1. Sign up for the Learning Spaces Advisory Community on Microsoft Teams. 
  2. When prompted, download the Teams application. 
  3. Check your email for a welcome message with more information on how to get the most out of the online group. 
  4. Any time the community meets, an online meeting space will be available inside of Microsoft Teams that you can use to participate remotely. Teams also can be used to conduct chat-based conversations outside of scheduled meetings or to collaborate on documents related to the topic.
