Teaching first, Technology second
The Krause Innovation Studio defines its work in terms of interactions and activities, rather than tools and technologies. Our vision is of a physical and intellectual space focused on developing 21st century educational leaders who engage in innovation and research with emerging technological tools, and achieve excellence in teaching and learning.
The reversal of the traditional educational technology paradigm (i.e. teaching first, technology second) addresses the needs of an increasingly diverse and geographically dispersed student population.
CHANGES TO SCHEDULE: The Studio will not have public hours between Saturday 11/23 and Sunday 12/1 for Thanksgiving Week. Public hours resume on Monday 12/2 at 9 a.m. For reservation requests during this time, please contact Mike Rook at mrook[at]psu.edu.
Book a Space, Bring a Device, Bring a Friend
The Krause Innovation Studio learning space is a BYOD (bring your own device) environment. The work stations allow you to bring a laptop or tablet computer to connect your device to a built-in connection — enabling you to view your computer screen on a much larger video monitor, so you can share with your colleagues.
A staff member is always available during normal operating hours to help.
Do you need more information about the Learn Lab or engaging with our research? Schedule a consultation.
Schedule a Consultation
Our staff has been trained to provide consultations to faculty members to review and transform current learning goals and outcomes using the affordances of the Krause Innovation Studio learning spaces.
When you book a consultation, expect to meet one-on-one with a staff member ready to answer your questions or assist you in creating a proposal to use the Learn Lab for the duration of a semester.
Did you decide to get involved? Join a research project.
Join a Research Project
You are invited to join in one of our research projects to add to the body of knowledge through using the Learn Lab’s affordances during your course. As part of using the Learn Lab, we require an intellectual product (e.g. white paper, manuscript, conference presentation) that details what research questions you had and your outcomes.
Follow our other research projects to find out what other studies we’re conducting. For example, our current Learning Spaces study involves investigating the built pedagogy and design rationale for the Krause Innovation Studio learning space.
We encourage cross-disciplinary research, so if you see an area of interest that we have not yet explored or started research in, feel free to propose a new research project for us to collaborate on.
