Terrains 2015 Mapping learning environment evaluation across the design and education landscape: Towards the evidence-based design of education facilities

Imms, W | Cleveland, B | Mitcheltree, H. (2015)

Terrains, as its name suggested, was a cartographic examination of learning environment evaluation. It invited all higher-degree students working in learning environments to assemble and present a short synopsis of their research. Through the careful sequencing of papers, and input after each paper by expert interlocoteurs, Terrains explored how this ...

Mediating contemporary learning through spatial change: An account of 'library-as-experimental-space'

Morrison, C. (2015)

Changing a school from traditional to contemporary learning is challenging. This paper presents anempirically researched account of how one primary school, struggling to bring about a more contemporary learning environment, ‘reimagined the geography of learning’ (Mulcahy, 2015) through redesigning the library as an experimental learning space. Altering the image of ...

The other half of the picture: post-occupancy evaluation for alignment of space and pedagogy

Newton, C | Cleveland, B. (2015)

Prefabricated relocatable learning environments form an important component of school infrastructure in Australia but their light-weight construction means they often require air-conditioning for a comfortable indoor environment quality (IEQ). The ‘envi Sustainable Education Spaces’ were recently constructed by the Department of Education and Technology (DET) in Victoria to showcase a ...

Confusing messages: Is the modern learning environment an example of idealized curricula or disruptive innovation?

Wells, A. (2015)

Despite global commissioning of new school designs, there is a body of literature (Lackney, 2002; Moore & Lackney, 1993; Nair, 2002; Nair & Fielding, 2005; Tanner, 2001; Taylor, 2002; Wolff, 2002) that documents the challenges that environmental designers encounter when they endeavour to design for educational purpose. One difficulty has ...

Making the space for space: the classroom layout on teacher and student usage and perception of one-to-one technology

Byers, T | Imms, W. (2014)

Today, a significant proportion of Australian secondary school students have some level of access to digital technology through one-to-one or BYOD programs. This ubiquitous access to devices connected through wireless network can create a technology-enabled learning environments (TELE). The teacher-student connectivity of a TELE has the potential to facilitate more ...

Making the Case for Space: The Effect of Learning Spaces on Teaching and Learning

Byers, T | Imms, W | Hartnell-Young, E. (2014)

An explanatory, mixed method study examined the impact of learning spaces on teachers’ pedagogy, student engagement and student learning outcomes in a technology-rich school setting. Its quasi-experimental design allowed examination of differences in these variables between two settings ‐ ‘traditional’ classrooms, and ‘new generation learning spaces’ (NGLS). Results from quantitative ...
