Huge investments are being spent on learning spaces across the world with little evidence to support some of the decisions made regarding their effectiveness. We live in a world where much of what we do is configured around evidence-based practices, yet this model is in its infancy in education, particularly in learning environments.
Dr. Fisher will showcase some of the scholarly research work being carried out at institutions including the Learning Environments Applied Research Network at the University of Melbourne and the Centre for Effective Learning Environments at the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). It is this scholarly research that teases out what works and why, and what we should be building to ensure improved learning outcomes for both our teachers and students.
Join us in this introduction illustrating how such research can be put into practice by administrators, designers, teachers and others involved in educational planning and design.
