Talking Spaces 6: What works?

August 6, 2014 @ 9:00 am - August 7, 2014 @ 5:00 pm

Talking Spaces 6 explores the question: ‘What works?’ Via a series of workshops and seminars, the event will interrogate the theory, practice and use of ‘learning environment evaluation’. With the rapid development of new learning spaces and technologies the need to collect evidence that can inform decisions about how best to design and use the spaces where people learn has never been greater.

A mix of concurrent and streamed sessions will address the issues concerning the evaluation of learning environments in a) schools and universities and b) medical education contexts.

Talking Spaces 6 is brought to you by the Learning Environments Applied Research Network (LEaRN) in collaboration with the Evaluating 21st Century Learning Environments (E21LE) ARC Linkage Project.

Previous Talking Spaces have been sold out.  Due to limited 2014 spaces, it is strongly suggested that you register early for this event.  To do so please visit:
