This symposium provides opportunity for post-graduate researchers to share their latest thinking and research on the design, use, and evaluation of new generation learning environments. It is an event that celebrates emerging research and researchers. Hosted by the University of Melbourne’s Learning Environments Applied Research Network (LEaRN), and organized by the Evaluating 21st Century Learning Environments 2014-2016 ARC Linkage project team, Snapshots will showcase the fresh ideas and innovative strategies that early career researchers are bringing to this topic.

The event

Situated in the Melbourne Graduate School of Education, Snapshots will present 10 minute papers in short batches across one day of presentations. There will be no concurrent sessions – all participants will enjoy all papers. Innovative presentation methods are encouraged and considerable time will be allocated to discussion.
