1:50 PM University of Sydney: Exploring how Designed Form Indirectly Shapes Face-to-Face Learning Activity

It is one thing to say we value participatory forms of learning activity but putting this theory to work is challenging. This presentation offers insights into projects at the University of Sydney where we are exploring how alterations in furnishings are indirectly shaping situated learning activity. Based on observations, interviews, and survey data this presentation explores

  • The alignment of the material, conceptual, and social structures of learning,
  • The value of unfurnished or ‘empty’ space, and
  • The role of the designed environment in articulating time, visualising information, and consensus framing in a university setting.
