Classroom Advisory Committee
A recent report from the Committee on the Undergraduate Student Facilities Resource Plan recommended the establishment of a standing committee that “studies, reviews and recommends ongoing efforts with campus learning spaces.” Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Scott Waugh accepted this recommendation and formed the Classroom Advisory Committee, a standing committee which will advise the Campus Space Committee on issues related to UCLA’s instructional spaces, including classrooms and teaching laboratories, both general assignment and departmentally-controlled.
The Classroom Advisory Committee has a broad charge, covering both short-term and long-term issues, including the following:
- Plan and oversee development of a comprehensive assessment of UCLA’s learning spaces.
- Recommend a multi-year (e.g., ten-year) classroom renovation schedule.
- Identify the classroom characteristics that are most important for creating an effective and inclusive learning environment.
- Identify the kinds of learning spaces that are most needed.
- Provide recommendations for learning spaces that enable pedagogical innovation and experimentation.
- Identify areas of the campus where additional instructional space is most needed.
- Recommend strategies for increasing the efficient use of classrooms.
