An exciting collaboration between Architecture and Arts Education, this subject examines how we should design, inhabit and maximise the use of student-centred learning spaces in schools and other educational institutions. The recent injection of significant funding for new or refurbished spaces and ICT by both state and federal governments is creating the need for a transformation of professional knowledge around pedagogies and spatial use. What should ‘innovative’ schools and classrooms look like and how should they operate? How can designers and users of these spaces collaborate on their conceptualisation? How can we evaluate the effectiveness of these spaces, and develop an ongoing dialogue between designers and teachers that builds a broad understanding of the educational and design professions’ languages and epistemologies? In finding ways of maximising use of flexible learning spaces, this interdisciplinary subject introduces students to the links that should exist between new pedagogies and space.
On completion of this subject, students will achieve an understanding of:
Students will explore the role of change management and professional development.
