Session Type: Teaching and Learning
The field of learning spaces research has generated considerable discussion in the academic community and prompted several institutions either to construct or plan to construct technology-enhanced learning environments. Despite the enthusiasm expressed for transforming formal learning spaces, there is a dearth of systematic, empirical research on these spaces for teaching and learning. In this presentation, we will present results from a grant-funded, mixed-methods research project that investigated the effects of innovative technology-enhanced classrooms on student learning at the University of Minnesota. Specifically, we will provide evidence that learning space affects learning. We will discuss how learning spaces affect learning and how they matter to different student populations.
