Transitions North America Video Release

Did you miss out on our Transitions North America Graduate Research Symposium? You can now view videos of the presentations here. The proceedings containing full papers is now also available.


Learning Environments Applied Research Network (LEaRN) have held Graduate Research Symposiums over the past four years. These symposiums recognise that graduate researchers bring a wealth of practical experience and new thinking to issues.

In 2017 the Innovative Learning Environments and Teacher Change (ILETC) project team organised two international symposia, based on the successful Australian format.

Transitions North America

The North America program included 2 keynote addresses by Dr Pam Moran (Superintendent, Albermarle County, Virginia) and Dr Julie Marshall (Saluda Trail Middle School, South Carolina) and 11 papers by emerging researchers in the field of learning environments exploring:

  • How well are teachers making this transition?
  • Are these spaces facilitating any improvement in teaching practices?
  • What evidence exists that these spaces are improving student experiences and learning?
  • What is needed to help teachers better utilise space as one of their pedagogic tools?
