new learning spaces – what and how

Our next public seminar is coming up.


Professor Jill Blackmore from Deakin University, Victoria , Australia, will discuss innovative new learning environments. She will report on research which investigated twelve schools designing new buildings and redesigning spaces in existing buildings.

The research was part of an international OECD project which examined the ways in which innovative teaching might be supported in new technology-rich spaces.

The Australian project has a website, the Learning Spaces Portal,  which contains a range of resources including case studies, a literature review and a paper on visual methodologies.


Jill will argue that flexible learning spaces, as learning technologies, can, but do not necessarily, enable pedagogical reform and she will highlight the factors and practices that do make a difference.

Jill is a special professor in CRACL.
