This three day international research conference focuses on the journey schools and teachers make as they reimagine and redevelop their learning spaces.
In Australia and many other countries, school design is being transformed with new flexible, innovative learning environments. Research is showing innovative learning environments are not a magic cure, but evidence is mounting that they constitute a powerful tool that – if used well – improves student educational experiences. We can now say schools (and teachers) navigate a transformative journey as they re-imagine their learning spaces.
What is involved in making the journey from traditional to innovative learning environments? What is the latest research telling us about how teachers can be supported on this journey?
The program will feature research presentations by graduate and early career researchers, educators and designers along with workshops, discussions and school tours. This event aims to connect research with practice and is ideal for teachers, school leaders, architects and policy makers involved in designing or refurbishing schools or developing teaching practices that use space to support innovative learning.
When: 2nd – 4th October
Where: Melbourne University
