Social and Cognitive Affordances of Physical and Virtual Learning Spaces

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    This anthology on learning spaces in higher education explores the extent to which the computer lab and other formal and informal learning spaces offer a viable alternative to the traditional design studio in supporting students to learn collaboratively and be creative. We define learning space as the various places where teaching and learning occur, including formal and informal locations as well as those in both physical and virtual environments. Foreword -- Ch.1.
