Talking Spaces 6 (TS6) explored the question: ‘What works?’. Via a series of workshops and seminars, the event interrogated the theory, practice and use of ‘learning environment evaluation’. With the rapid development of new learning spaces and technologies the need to collect evidence that can inform decisions about how best to design and use the spaces where people learn has never been greater.


A mix of concurrent and streamed sessions addressed the issues concerning the evaluation of learning environments in a) schools and universities, and b) medical education contexts.
