Concurrent Session 8
Learning Environment Modeling (LEM), comprised of a shared, one-of-its-kind visual language and design technique, provides educators with a powerful solution for facilitating effective communication throughout processes and advancing and energizing learning environment design and learning. LEM is easy to learn and quickly implemented. Its minimal components render it widely accessible, highly affordable, and easily scalable. Developed at the Center for eLearning and Connected Environments (CeCE) at the University of Central Oklahoma (UCO), LEM has been successfully integrated into all facets of the Center’s daily operations. It lies at the core of CeCE initiatives for developing and sustaining high-quality elearning offerings and advancing innovation in learning across a spectrum of modalities. LEM has also been successfully adopted by users at other education and corporate organizations. Information and evidence presented throughout this document reflect how LEM supports the five pillars of learning effectiveness, scale, access, faculty satisfaction, and student satisfaction.
