Larner Learning Commons

University of Vermont Medical School, Burlington, VT


DartmouthX Teaching Theater


Jones Architecture was hired as a consultant to Freeman French Freeman, Architects to provide programming, planning, and schematic design services for this major renovation to the medical school library at the University of Vermont. Situated between the medical school and the hospital, this library serves a wide range of patrons: doctors, nurses, medical school students, college of nursing and health sciences students, staff, and administration. In response to the success of a recent renovation to create a team-based learning (TBL) classroom in the existing Dana Medical Library, and to incorporate other new partners, the space is re-conceived as the Larner Learning Commons. Constituents within the Commons include the Dana Medical Library, the Larner TBL Classroom, the Educational Technology Group (production studio, help desk, IT support), and the Teaching Academy.
