dc.description.abstract In Fall 2007, the University Library at Sonoma State opened the doors to its newest space: The Learning & Teaching Center (LTC). As a dynamic, technology-rich space for information literacy and technology instruction, the LTC provides flexible spaces for teaching, learning, information creation and presentation, and curricular development. The remodeled space includes a wireless classroom, a multimedia lab, individual movie editing rooms, training rooms, a faculty development office, group work areas and more. This presentation will explore the ways in which the practical decisions made throughout the remodeling project have allowed for creativity in teaching and learning within the Center. The presentation will look at issues such as: how to furniture selections, paint color, wall decorations and lighting, all add up to a transformative learning environment? What are the technologies that fit best in such an environment and how do they allow for innovative approaches to learning? How can creating a "great looking space" advance information literacy initiatives on a campus? Practical tips such as selecting furniture styles, working with furniture consultants, and testing laptops and laptop carts will be considered alongside the pedagogical transformations that have begun due to the existence and flexibility of the space. The presentation will also chronicle the challenges and successes faced thus far, as well as recommendations on process for libraries considered similar projects. en
