Festival of Learning Spaces

Synopsis

As we emerge out of the COVID crisis, we are seeing a major experiment in digitally-enabled learning in the UK Higher Education sector. A large portion of lectures, learning activities and assessment are likely to be carried out virtually.  In order to achieve this, a substantial change management process within the institutions as well as a reconceptualization of physical learning spaces is required.  This session will explore the factors to consider when re-designing curriculum for online as well as face-to-face learning. Hiral will focus on linking curriculum design with learning spaces, and the practices of using learning spaces. Neil will explore the idea of virtual learning space and its characteristics, as well as implications of online learning on physical learning spaces.
