Abstract

This symposium presents our efforts to reconceptualize learning spaces from their traditional notions as bound and immutable to a view in which the physical and social boundaries are flexible and dynamically connected to the learning itself. We present the work from five international research centers that consider space as a multi-dimensional mediational tool that shapes, and is shaped by, the learning communities who use them. In each case, researchers will present their innovative spaces along with the learning community frameworks they use to describe and design them. Each study demonstrates specific insights regarding how to conceptualize and design Future Learning Spaces for Learning Communities. Copyright © 2016 ISLS.
