Meet up with DLR Group's higher education experts at the SCUP 2018 Conference in Nashville, Tennessee, and make plans to attend one of our three sessions.
On July 16 at 10 a.m. Krisan Osterby is presenting Big Questions, Gaming, and Hack-A-Thons: Creative Disruption and Resilient Planning. In today’s rapidly changing educational, environmental, financial, and societal climate, new projects are both a risk and an opportunity and new strategies are required to “future-proof” projects for flexibility. Institutions are using new approaches to identify critical issues, minimize risks, and maximize return on investment for improvements. Presenters will provide examples of evolving information, processes, and exercises to engage stakeholders, identify disruptive ideas, and create resilient strategies so that you can develop an institution-specific framework for problem seeking and systems thinking. You can earn CEU credits AIA LU 1.0 unit (SCUP53C152), and AICP CM 1.0 unit.
On July 17 at 3 p.m. Krisan Osterby and Paul Westlake are presenting Catalyzing Campus Conversations: Art, Engagement, and Diversity. Public art, events, and projects that are embedded in the curriculum, facilities, and campus promote a positive social climate, activate learning, and provide key resources for an inclusive academic community. We will show you how institutions can leverage their campus and facilities to increase diversity, global relevance, community engagement, and creativity. You will learn how precedents, projects, and protocols can enable you to embrace trends in placemaking and pedagogy in your institution. You can earn CEU credits AIA LU/HSW 1.0 unit (SCUP53C145), and AICP CM 1.0 unit
During a post-conference session on July 18, Roger Chang, Elizabeth Hawkins, Lindsey Piant Perez, and Prem Sundharam are leading a workshop, Gaming for a Resilient Future: Net-zero Energy Campuses, from 8 - 11:30 a.m. Institutions are required to holistically plan for overall resiliency, net-zero energy, payback, and best management practices. In this workshop, the DLR Group team will present a practical tool kit for rethinking buildings as part of larger campus systems to provide innovative, integrated utility solutions and strategies. You will learn campus-level gaming strategies and scenario testing that integrates human experience with facility data and achieves savings. Through hands-on exercises, you will also apply energy concepts through multiple perspectives of net-zero, campus sustainability, and programmatic goals. You can also earn CEU credits, AIA LU/HSW 3.25 units (SCUP53W010) and AICP CM 3.25 units.
