Rethink: Interdisciplinary evaluation of academic workspaces

Backhouse, S | Newton, C | Fisher, K | Cleveland, B | Naccarella, L. (2019)

Academic workspace remains an emotive topic. It is bound tightly with each academic’s identity, purpose and status. As universities increasingly focus on cross-disciplinary collaboration to producenew knowledge, the sanctuary of the individual office is under challenge. Inspired by precedents in the commercial world, universities are experimenting with more open workspace ...


A Framework for Designing Inpatient Stroke Rehabilitation Facilities: A New Approach Using Interdisciplinary Value-Focused Thinking.

Lipson-Smith, R | Churilov, L | Newton, C | Zeeman, H | Bernhardt, J. (2019)

AIM: To use Value-Focused Thinking to investigate what is important in the design of inpatient stroke rehabilitation facility buildings. BACKGROUND: Many stroke patients require inpatient rehabilitation in a dedicated facility. Rehabilitation facilities are healthcare spaces, but they are also learning spaces where patients practice targeted tasks to acquire new skills ...

Innovative Learning Environments and Teacher Change

Curated learning: a pedagogical approach to maximise learning environments for students’ deep learning

Villafranca, E. (2019)

Globally, billions of dollars have been allocated in developing highly adaptable, technology-infused, and connected learning spaces, called Innovative Learning Environments (ILEs), capable of accommodating a variety of pedagogical practices intended to equip students with skills and competencies critical for thriving in this rapidly changing world. However, research indicate that teachers ...


Empirical evaluation of different classroom spaces on students' perceptions of the use and effectiveness of 1-to-1 technology

Byers, T | Hartnell-Young, E | Imms, W. (2018)

This study evaluated if different classroom layouts enacted different pedagogical uses of digital technology in a secondary schooling environment. A quasi-experimental approach facilitated by a Single Subject Research Design (SSRD) isolated the impact of two learning spaces –traditional’ classrooms, and ‘New Generation Learning Spaces’ (NGLS), on students' and teachers’ perceptions ...

A Systematic Review of the Effects of Learning Environments on Student Learning Outcomes - Technical Report 4/2018

Byers, T | Mahat, M | Liu, K | Knock, A | Imms, W. (2018)

The systematic review identified evidence that different learning environments (blended, innovative learning environment (ILE), open-plan and traditional) have an impact on student learning outcomes. There are significant methodological questions around the availability and viability of empirical evidence. This systematic review investigated how researchers measure changes in academic outcomes attributed to ...


Why Innovative Learning Environments? Stories from three schools that helped establish an ongoing space and pedagogy agenda

Cleveland, B. (2018)

The research reported in this chapter was conducted to address a seemingly simple question: How are contemporary middle years (Years 5-9) pedagogies influencing the design of physical learning environments? What the study uncovered was a deep spatio-pedagogical conversation about historical misalignments between middle years pedagogies and largely isolated and dissociated ...


Learning Environment Design and Use. Towards Effective Learning Environments in Catholic Schools (TELE): An Evidence-based Approach (2015-2017)

Cleveland, B | Soccio, P | Mountain, R | Imms, W. (2018)

This report – Summary of Findings – is intended to support evidence-based decision making by those involved in the design and use of school learning environments. It summarises the findings of a three-year collaborative research initiative involving Catholic Education Melbourne (CEM), Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta (CEDP) and the Learning ...

Innovative Learning Environments and Teacher Change: Defining key concepts - Technical Report 3/2018

Mahat, M | Bradbeer, C | Byers, T | Imms, W. (2018)

The aim of this report is to provide a synthesis of the literature that is relevant to our project and has informed definitions of key constructs. By synthesising scholarly research, together with quantitative findings from the Space, Design and Use Survey (Imms, Mahat, Byers & Murphy, 2017) and qualitative findings ...
