Affordances - Lecturer Feedback
“The work you guys did on C167 is
amazing. I had two classes in
there yesterday, we used all the
whiteboards, we moved the
tables to be a u-shape for the
start then back to the circles. It
was quick and easy and the ‘Air
Media’ thing sounds superb, I
can't wait to have the freedom to
move around and teach”.
“…it will be my favourite
room, I am delighted that
one of my classes is
timetabled there. The
ability to display student
devices makes it so easy
to manage student
presentations.”
“Dual projection is ideal
for maths teaching,
display the problem on
one screen and then work
through the solution on
the other.”

Lessons learnt
Lessons for the future
• Consider pedagogically-
oriented principles (eg UK
HE Learning Space
Toolkit)
• Consider appropriate
professional development
initiatives for staff
• Observe, observe,
observe how learning
spaces are being used

Redesigning the classroom: a small-scale case study

Editor's Notes

  1. Many universities today are struggling with the challenge of working with learning spaces that were originally designed for different pedagogies and different purposes. We are told (and we can see for ourselves) that we have an increasingly mobile generation of students who like to use their mobile devices and who are open to mobility and connectedness in multiple forms. This presentation describes a relatively small scale project that was undertaken to create a next generation learning space to better meet the needs of these learners. It describes the process undertaken, the reasoning behind the decisions, and some initial feedback from lecturers and students using those spaces. We also look at lessons learnt and finally look towards what we plan to do in future research.
  2. So we have three different types of learning space here - the informal, the formal, and the virtual learning space.
  3. In this question, staff were asked about the top priorities for spaces needing work. This slide shows that flat classroom spaces were rated as the highest priority for future development. Almost 43% of lecturers voted them an immediate priority.
  4. In particular, when asked about preferences for furniture type within such classrooms, results indicated a strong preference for flexible furniture whereby tables can be easily moved, joined up, or folded up as required. 42.4% of respondents voted for flexible furniture options. So with this information gathered, the size of the task quickly became apparent and a multi phased project emerged. The first phase of development described in this paper involved developing a small number of showcase learning spaces that facilitate both collaborative and technology enhanced learning.
  5. This project drew heavily on the 7 principles of learning design developed by Keppell, Riddle & Souter (2011) so I’m using those principles as a framework for this presentation. The project team aimed to use these principles to create a learning environment that is student-centred, collaborative, and experiential. In summary, the CAFEBAR acronym calls for Comfort: a space which creates a physical and mental sense of ease and well-being. Aesthetics: pleasure which includes the recognition of symmetry, harmony, simplicity and fitness for purpose. Flow: the state of mind felt by the learner when totally immersed in the learning experience. Equity: consideration of the needs of cultural and physical differences. Blending: a mixture of technological and face-to-face pedagogical resources. Affordances: the “action possibilities” the learning environment provides the users, including such things as kitchens, natural light, Wi-Fi, private spaces, writing surfaces, sofas, and so on. Repurposing: the potential for multiple usage of a space So with these principles in mind, I’ll now describe what was actually done.
