EDspaces 2018 Scholarship Open for Education Administrators
SILVER SPRINGS, MD – Key decision makers at schools, colleges or universities involved in the design, build, management, or renovation of an educational facility are invited to apply for a Scholarship to attend EDspaces 2018, November 7-9 in Tampa, FL.
Now in its eighth year, the EDspaces Scholarship Program funds registration and hotel accommodations for facility planners, superintendents, purchasing officers, and related staff employed by schools/districts, colleges, and universities. The program also assists school and college officials in making more effective decisions for their ongoing and future facility construction or renovation projects and to take part in the discussion on the impact of technology, pedagogy, and space on student learning.
“As a past EDspaces Scholarship recipient, I have really enjoyed the high caliber content of the speakers and sessions on topics highly relevant to the trends in education today,” says Dan Case, associate director of Academic Technology at Carroll College in Helena, MT. “The tours of innovative spaces add tremendous value to the entire conference experience.”
Last year, scholarship recipients had bonds and plans for more than $12 billion in renovation and construction projects for 2018–2020. The program provided key decision makers from more than 100 universities, community colleges, and schools/districts with high-quality education and high-quality professional development.
This year, visionary keynotes include Michael Horn, author of Amazon bestseller, Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns, and a joint presentation by Chris Lehmann, Science Leadership Academy CEO, and Diana Laufenberg, executive director of Inquiry Schools, who will co-present an inquiry-based talk about schools’ purpose.
The EDspaces Scholarship Program is a competitive application process. Eligibly is determined upon completion and submission of an application online. Applications provide information about planned renovation, repurposed spaces, or construction projects. Scholarship applications are evaluated based on the projected number and value of potential building projects and additional eligibility criteria. Completed applications are due by May 2, 2018.
EDspaces is the conference advancing the conversation about the future of learning environments. It is where innovations are unveiled and collaborations form, bringing together education’s creative change agents who plan, design, and manage innovative learning environments. Leaders from school districts and colleges, architects, interior designers, dealers, and exhibitors engage and participate in the ongoing transformation of the learning environment.
