Learning Places: introducing, constructing and evaluating active learning environments

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This presentation will discuss the ‘Learning Places’ project which is part of Ulster University’s Learning Landscape Transition Management Project. The 'Learning Places' project encompasses a number of activities, which are investigating, documenting and promoting the effective use of learning spaces within Ulster University. These activities seek to contribute to the current sector discourses and ensure that Ulster University takes an active and informed approach to the integration of space, facilities and resources to support all learners. This presentation will particularly focus on the design of a SCALE-UP (Student Centred Active Learning Environment with Upside-down Pedagogies) physical space on the Belfast campus, and planning of the learning and teaching activities to be undertaken in this space.
