Designing the Learning Environment

Learning in a Changing World

Author(s): Dr Susan La Marca

Publisher: ACER Press

Designing the Learning Environment discusses how we develop effective learning spaces with an emphasis on understanding the needs of the major stakeholders of these spaces – students. Designing learning spaces and, in particular, designing school libraries as learning spaces, is presented as an approach to understanding learning needs. Specifically, planning must be learning driven, human-centred and flexible. Designing a learning environment begins with the end in sight – it looks at the research and learning theories and uses these as the foundation for planning. Various aspects of school library design are considered and discussed: types of spaces (from large group to individual, workroom spaces, reading spaces); ICT requirements; the impact of factors such as lighting and acoustics; and the aesthetics of the finished design.
