LEaRN is a multidisciplinary forum, a portal and an international network bringing together academia and industry to research, imagine and discuss physical learning environments in school, vocational, university, medical and corporate contexts.
LEaRN is based on an understanding that the built environment critically impacts the educational experiences of teachers and learners and that applied research and design of innovative learning environments will bring community benefit.
Over the past decade, LEaRN has brought together business/ industry, teaching, research, consultancy, policy/ government and academia in dynamic partnerships. Partners contribute to setting innovative research agendas, the outcomes of which are shared across the network as research is developed for feedback, engagement and collaboration.
