'Reconceptualising space in learning'

Space has been a topic of discussion in much of the literature on learning and more often than not it focuses on the physical spaces and design for teaching and learning. In this session I reconceptualise space in relation to learning. As such four learning spaces are presented to provide a different way of conceptualising learning spaces and learning generally. They are conceived of as the result of learners engaging with any given programme and are seen as the effect of the learning community. These learning spaces are less visible and tangible than those discussed in the learning literature. They can contribute to our understanding of learning because they can demonstrate evidence of the desired learning outcomes of a programme, or at least activity related to the desired outcomes. Used in this way they can be seen as a very compelling way to rethink how facilitators of learning can support the learners.
