Moving beyond the classroom: Accommodating the changing pedagogy of higher education. By Peter C. Lippman
This paper questions the future of the ‘classroom’ as a paradigm for teaching and learning settings within the university. In turn, it proposes the notion of ‘learning spaces’ as layered transactional settings for liberating our thinking and our approach to spatial design in order to achieve dynamic learning environments able to meet current and future needs of teachers and students.

Architect and Educator Peter C. Lippman explores how best to design spaces in which students can work together.
This is the first part of a double series that explore collaborative spaces for K-12 learning environments. Building on research, this article proposes the different spaces, instructional spaces and the breakout spaces, which might be included in these settings. Additionally, it examines how technology can be integrated into them. Lastly, the article features animations showcasing the variety of spaces within these facilities, along with photographic examples of settings that embrace the ideas proposed.

'Settings For Learning Relationships' in Copenhagen
Philip Idle yesterday presented to 130 Scandinavian delegates at the Nohr-Con 'School Buildings of the Future' conference in Copenhagen. Providing a background to the planning and design of new and refurbished Australian schools. Philip focused on the theme 'Settings For Learning Relationships' outlining how he believes the last 10 years has evolved from being technology focused and having an impact on facility design, back towards a better understanding of how all modes of learning relationships can be enhanced through better designed learning environments.
"Danish schools seem to be struggling with similar issues in the refurbishment of old and new school buildings in trying to provide for more collaborative learning models. Their high quality of design prowess is evident in the 4 schools I visited and there are certainly some lessons learned which I can bring back for EIW's ongoing clientele and our ongoing commitment of 'building ideas' ", he reported.
A blog report and video interview conducted with Philip will be available upon his return next week.
