A new guide from JISC about how to design learning spaces will be launched at the JISC Conference on the 14th March.

‘Designing Spaces for Effective Learning’ is a new publication from the e-Learning and Innovation strand which will be launched at the JISC Conference on 14 March. Taking the approach of a ‘walk through’ an educational institution, the guide highlights current thinking about the use of learning technologies and their impact on a range of physical spaces, using noteworthy examples from current new-build and refurbishment projects. A richly illustrated publication, it offers architect-designed examples of space usage with general guidance on maximising the effectiveness of learning through the design of physical spaces. It concludes with a checklist of key points to help senior managers embarking on space utilisation and refurbishment projects.

The e-Learning and Innovation strand now provides a portfolio of resources on physical learning space design. ‘Designing Spaces for Effective Learning’ builds on the academic study completed in 2005 for JISC by Birmingham University Learning Development Unit - How innovative technologies are influencing the design of physical learning spaces in the post-16 sector, also known as the JISC eSpaces Project

A further web-based infoKit is planned for development in spring 2006 in conjunction with JISC infoNet. This resource will link to other infoKits designed to assist senior managers in successfully planning and implementing projects in their institutions, and can be updated and revised to reflect the changing technological scene.
