A Template for a Media Commons Typology

Javier Isado

Abstract

This paper proposes an adaptable media commons concept as a foundational element for the design of learning spaces. The concept is based on the possibility to create flexible and resourceful spatial situations that can structure pedagogical and creative environments. The essential core elements, spaces, and artifacts of the media commons project are equipped with technology that enable various multi-media venues and practices of information transfer. This auditorium-classroom-laboratory integrated scenario would basically act as a dynamic environment that would link pedagogy, creativity, and knowledge formation as a product of social interaction in a specific set of spaces. This position paper about two manifestations of the media commons project at the Rio Piedras campus of the University of Puerto Rico, is basically a research and development study proposal on typological variations of an ensemble for in-person and remote collaborative space -such as or similar to that of design studios, innovation hubs, and online forums and platforms- and their effect on creativity, participation and authority in a pedagogical setting.
