Re-imagining learning spaces to inspire contemporary learning
with Kay Oddone, Education Consultant

Life has changed. Students have changed. Technology has changed and the way we learn has changed. Students’ learning is shaped by their teachers, their peers and their environment – the Third Teacher.

Learning space design is now recognised as a key influence on the way students learn and how pedagogy is enacted. Access to information is no longer limited to the schoolroom, or centred in the role of the teacher. This fundamental shift must be addressed if students are to be truly prepared as innovators, creators and collaborators of the future.

Creating a new learning space within the confines of existing structures, and with limited budgets can be challenging. However, with a good understanding of recent research and a few creative ideas, simple changes that have far-reaching effects can be achieved.

In this webinar, participants will be introduced to several key models for redefining learning spaces, and will discover new ways to approach learning space design – whether they are classroom based, in a library, or even an office.

By attending this webinar you will:
- become familiar with models for learning space design;
- learn why the environment where learning occurs is important; and
- discover ideas and tips for redesign within classroom/library budgets & structures.
