Designing Spaces for Effective Learning – a Guide to 21st century Learning Space Design

Read

An educational building is an expensive long-term resource. The design of its individual spaces needs to be:

•     Flexible – to accommodate both current and evolving pedagogies
•     Future-proofed – to enable space to be re-allocated and reconfigured
•     Bold – to look beyond tried and tested technologies and pedagogies
•     Creative – to energise and inspire learners and tutors
•     Supportive – to develop the potential of all learners
•     Enterprising – to make each space capable of supporting different purposes

A learning space should be able to motivate learners and promote learning as an activity, support collaborative as well as formal practice, provide a personalised and inclusive environment, and be flexible in the face of changing needs. The part technology plays in achieving these aims is the focus of this guide.
