H202 Associate Professor Bob Fox
A/Dean Learning Environments
Faculty of Education
The University of Hong Kong Overview
Setting the scene
Imagining future learning spaces
New spaces meeting needs of 3+3+4
Studies informing design of new learning spaces
Principles informing the design of learning spaces
New spaces - empowering teaching and learning
Learning designs – Physical and Virtual New opportunities and changing needs
Large increase in student intake in 2012
New opportunities, curriculum, new buildings, new technologies, changing study habits
Changing student demographics (younger)
Changing curriculum demands – KBE and 3+3+4 STUDIES INFORMING THE DESIGN OF LEARNING SPACES
‘An educational building is an expensive LONG-TERM resource.

Design of spaces needs to be:
• Flexible – accommodate current & evolving pedagogies
• Future-proofed – enable re-using & reconfiguring space
• Bold – look beyond existing technologies & pedagogies
• Creative – energise & inspire learners & tutors
• Supportive – develop the potential of all learners
• Enterprising – make each space capable of supporting different purposes’
(JISC, 2006)
We will add one more principle:
Sustainable - optimise use of natural light and shade, minimise unnecessary use of paper, electricity, etc. Local studies

Review existing T&L places and utilisation and report on their affordances for active learning
Recommend changes to existing spaces and designs for new places
Propose flexible classrooms and learning commons and study areas
Evaluate effectiveness of pilot areas
Report on appropriate re-purposing of places
Report on design specifications for new T&L environments to meet needs for 2012 and beyond
