‘4C’ing Future Learning Spaces
We have long understood that learning is a social, as well as an individual process. How can the classroom environment encourage, active, student led, group learning? How can technology best support this? A case study of the evolving learning spaces at Tanglin and the drive towards more student independence; combining best practice from traditional teaching methods with new possibilities from modern technology.

We often think of collaborative learning in terms of classroom interactions, but it plays an important role in creating and adapting learning spaces, as well. In this session, we will explore how collaboration between students, academics and design professionals has led to insights into how students use classrooms and informal campus spaces.
Higher education institutions have begun to re-imagine traditional lecture halls in ways that can better support active learning methods, but large classroom renovations are complex and require buy-in from a variety of campus stakeholders. In this session you will learn how the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill worked within numerous constraints to transform an aging lecture hall into an active learning environment.
