The ‘state of play’ concerning New Zealand’s transition to innovative learning environments: Preliminary results from phase one of the ILETC project

Bradbeer, C | Mahat, M | Byers, T | Cleveland, B | Kvan, T | Imms, W. (2017)

Driven by international trends and government policy, it is a requirement for all newly built schools in New Zealand to be designed as innovative learning environments (ILEs) with flexible learning spaces. These environments, celebrated by some for the “transformational” educational opportunities they may provide, also raise questions about whether the ...

Impact of classroom design on teacher pedagogy and student engagement and performance in mathematics

Imms, W | Byers, T. (2017)

The development of online and virtual teaching and learning environments to augment formal face-to-face environments raises questions about the way the new communication and information (CIT) technologies are being incorporated into the on-campus environment. More importantly, this development challenges the meaning of the on-campus student learning experience. The new CITs ...

Type and Use of Innovative Learning Environments in Australasian Schools ILETC Survey 1

Imms, W | Mahat, M | Byers, T | Murphy, D. (2017)

Innovative Learning Environments (ILEs), celebrated by some for the ‘transformational’ educational opportunities they may provide, raise questions whether the anticipated pedagogical value of these ‘non-traditional’ spaces is based on idealised visions of teaching and learning rather than sound evidence. Before such complex issues can be efficiently addressed, evidence of the ...
