PEDAGOGY OF SPACE: Lessons Learned Sustaining Change in Evolving Educational Environments

Space The world in which our children live in and will move into is one that will continue to change.

To effectively create as well as sustain change while building agile educational environments, we all must work differently. Every segment within the educational community from instruction and procurement to designers and students needs to deeply evaluate the space, as well as the tools within the space. If we truly desire change, we may no longer be able to rely on tried and proven concepts. In this shift, we need to first understand the “Why” of a specific community, comprehend the “Who,” and only then can we begin to create the “How” and “What” with all stakeholders.

Learning Objectives:
  • Begin to consider space, and most importantly the tools within learning environments, as an opportunity to rethink how we deliver professional development and “permit” teaching and learning.
  • Be aware of examples of disruptive design techniques, and opportunities to acquire valuable information when constructing the next generation of facilities.
  • Begin to consider creating multi-functional spaces. Spaces that permit flexibility, agility, as well as professional development resources and tools which support – not restrict – creativity and innovation.
  • Begin to explore the utilization of simplicity in the baseline of all environments, increasing usefulness in the support of a multitude of teaching and learning styles. “Simplicity” equates to multi-functional.
