CTEL "What the research says..." workshop
Friday September 27th 2013
This workshop is part of a series entitled "What the research says..." and is organied by CTEL - a collaboration between the London Knowledge Lab, the Open University and the Learning Sciences Research Institute at the University of Nottingham. The series is aimed at reviewing and debating recent research around themes relevant to technology enhanced learning.
What are learning spaces and why should those involved in education - learners, teachers or developers - be concerned about Learning Spaces? This workshop will provide an overview of research directions in the design of spaces for learning – with special attention to the roll of digital technologies in shaping that design.
The presentations, demos and discussions will reflect and debate:
