A Systematic Review of the Effects of Learning Environments on Student Learning Outcomes - Technical Report 4/2018

Byers, T | Mahat, M | Liu, K | Knock, A | Imms, W. (2018)

The systematic review identified evidence that different learning environments (blended, innovative learning environment (ILE), open-plan and traditional) have an impact on student learning outcomes. There are significant methodological questions around the availability and viability of empirical evidence. This systematic review investigated how researchers measure changes in academic outcomes attributed to ...


Why Innovative Learning Environments? Stories from three schools that helped establish an ongoing space and pedagogy agenda

Cleveland, B. (2018)

The research reported in this chapter was conducted to address a seemingly simple question: How are contemporary middle years (Years 5-9) pedagogies influencing the design of physical learning environments? What the study uncovered was a deep spatio-pedagogical conversation about historical misalignments between middle years pedagogies and largely isolated and dissociated ...

Plug n Play: Future Prefab for Smart Green Schools

Newton, C | Backhouse, S | Aibinu, A | Cleveland, B | Crawford, R | Holzer, D | Soccio, P | Kvan, T. (2018)

While relocatable, prefabricated learning environments have formed an important component of school infrastructure in Australia, prefabrication for permanent school buildings is a new and emerging field. This review of prefabrication for schools is timely. In 2017, Australia’s two largest state education departments committed to prefabrication programs for permanent school infrastructure. ...

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 ...

Evaluating 21st Century Learning Environments

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 ...
