Free pre-conference Workshop 26 June: The story of LEARNING.SPACES at the IUT 2018 conference, Port Macquarie 
Time: 2pm-5pm 26 June

There are many learning approaches that can marry up with contemporary physical learning spaces designs to help produce better graduates for the future. Learning approaches has many forms, such as active learning that can branch out to socially embedded learning, project based learning, student-centeredness focus, learner generated content, co-creation activities, authentic activities, professional practice, interactive lectures, collaborative learning, peer instruction and many more. All these terms reflect the dynamic behaviour of staff and students in how we co-exist pedagogically using these new physical learning spaces. And so learning spaces are shifting from a mindset of just a physical place, but rather being integrated with virtual spaces, learning technologies and responsive furniture into learning approaches. Therefore it is about “being”, namely being the “third teacher”. In “learning environment archetypes”, the archetypes are characters that are part of a story and they too possess a story in themselves. The story is the learning. 

At the 2018 International Conference on Improving University Teaching (IUT) pre-conference workshop (26th June), CSU will take you on a journey of revealing some of these stories relating to learning spaces at the CSU Port Macquarie campus, technology and pedagogical approaches as examples of innovative teaching and on-campus experience for students. This will be a hands-on, sharing of experiences, case studies and interactive series of sessions.
