Abstract: What better place to have a deep discussion on the impact of space on learning than right outside of our nation’s capital of Washington D.C. – an area that embraces learning, offering countless cultural and historical artifacts, monuments, and experiences to the curious visitor or scholar. The 2011 LSC National Colloquium on Assessing the Impact of Spaces on Undergraduate Learners: Building a Community of Practice, took place in Chantilly Virginia on November 4-6, 2011. In fact, the origin and history of the word colloquium means to gather for conversation or discussion, and that is partially how to describe this event. Other descriptions could include sharing, collaboration, creative insights, spontaneous feedback, and many more. There was an international awareness present in many of these conversations, and a collective yet diverse interest in the topic of “defining what difference space(s) can make in a learning environment. “
