This conference, hosted by Queen Mary College, University of London, reports the findings of the recent Learning Landscapes in Higher Education study, funded by HEFCE/SFC/HEFCW. The aim of the study has been to look at ways in which teaching and learning spaces are being designed and developed in the higher education sector. The Learning Landscapes project has created a suite of development tools for enhancing the processes of teaching and learning space development, which will be made available at the event.
Key topics include:
- Strategic experimentation, e.g., between aesthetics and pedagogy; connecting the virtual and the built environment
- The student voice, as client and consultant
- Evaluation and Research: learning from experience
- The idea of the university: embedding academic values in design
The event will be of particular interest to: academic managers, estates professionals, academics interested in academic spaces, consultants, architects, designers and students.
There is no charge for this event.
