Effective Learning Spaces: Design for Learning and Experience - Part 1 (1:00 - 2:30) LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Open 1.5 Hour Session Limited to 60 Participants (First-Come, First-In). 

Space has a significant impact on learning and experience. Learning spaces have been an emerging topic in post-secondary education in recent years.

With the changing student population, technological advancement, and new understandings of learning, conventional assumptions, beliefs, and practices of learning spaces have been challenged.

What makes spaces succeed or fail, for whom, and in which ways? How do faculty and students experience learning spaces? What are the essential elements of effective learning spaces? What are the principles behind the design of effective learning spaces?

Engaging with participants’ past experience and connecting to current research, this session challenges participants to look at learning spaces in new ways and invites them to reimagine the design and use of spaces for effective learning and meaningful experience.

Part 1 of this session (1:00 - 2:30 pm) focuses on formal learning spaces and Part 2 (2:45 - 4:30 pm) on informal and mixed-use learning spaces.
