11:20 AM The Evolution of Collaborative Learning Space Design at UniSA

The University of South Australia began work on prototype, technology-rich collaborative teaching and learning spaces in 2012. Since then. The university has built the Jeffrey Smart Building (a 7 storey, purpose-built, student owned, collaborative teaching space) and worked through 4-5 iterations of collaborative classroom design. This presentation will discuss the evolution of these designs using a ‘whole of university’ approach to implementation. This has approach has involved broad engagement with facilities management, teaching and learning, students and IT services to reach the best outcome. It will outline current thinking on the design and implementation of these types of spaces based on our experiences across this spectrum of stakeholders within the university.

  • Timeline of design and building implementation
  • Student response to new spaces
  • Outline of ‘whole of university approach’ to classroom design and implantation
  • Outline of challenges to widespread adoption of blended pedagogies for teaching staff
