Thread: Learning Environments

Researchers from Ohio State’s Department of Design and M+A Architects collaborated on secondary research to discover proven strategies for leveraging subject-matter-linked workplace design, technology integration, and innovative use of “third spaces” to create successful learning environments. This session will share and further explore their key findings through an introductory presentation that will touch on design, when and how to use technology, and how the “third space” can be used for social engagement. It will also provide a forum to explore these ideas, reimagining where and how people learn. Through explorative breakout discussions moderated by one of the presenters, participants will collaborate with each other to share their perspectives and ideas on how the research could shape their classrooms and pedagogy.
