Designing spaces for effective learning

De wijze waarop we ruimtes inrichten beïnvloedt ook de manier hoe we ons binnen die ruimtes kunnen gedragen. Het onderwijs heeft daar bijvoorbeeld veel last van. Veel schoolgebouwen zijn vaak nauwelijks geschikt voor eigentijds onderwijs.

Het Britse JISC heeft recent een brochure uitgegeven die vertrekt vanuit ideeën over "leren in de 21ste eeuw". Vervolgens wordt gekeken naar de gevolgen voor de ruimtes waarin we leren:  ‘Designing Spaces for Effective Learning’ .

A visually-rich publication, it has been designed to promote better understanding of what makes an effective design for the 21st century and to summarise the key points to consider when approaching a refurbishment or new build project.

This publication takes the reader on a ’walk through’ an educational institution, exploring the relationship between learning technologies and innovative examples of physical space design at each stage of the journey. Discussion of the key points is illustrated by ten case studies from further and higher education, and floor plans from AMA Alexi Marmot Associates, architects and space planners, which provide up-to-date guidelines on the integration of technologies into teaching and learning accommodation.
