Young, Barbara; Hynes, Wendy; Hynes, Morgan – Journal of Learning Spaces, 2021
While the interior design of classroom spaces has evolved to support active learning methods, few studies have isolated environment changes from curriculum changes to understand the impact of space on behavior (Brooks, Walker, & Baepler, 2014). Adapting an observation instrument from the Brooks (2012) study, "Space and Consequences",…

Leijon, Marie; Malvebo, Elisabet; Tieva, Åse – Journal of Learning Spaces, 2021
In this position paper we present a theoretical model on how to support teachers to develop a "didactic spatial competence" (DiSCo). We define DiSCo as: Based on proven experience and science to have the ability to plan and design teaching and learning in a variety of learning spaces; to implement teaching and learning, act and react in…

Elrod, Rachael; Kester, Brittany; Spears, Laura I. – Journal of Learning Spaces, 2021
Many academic libraries renovate physical spaces to address the needs of the 21st century learner. This study presents the assessment tools used to evaluate the use of space prior to a branch library renovation as well as results of two post-renovation assessments to examine the success of the project. The pre-renovation survey showed that library…

McCorkle, Sarah – Journal of Learning Spaces, 2021
This qualitative study uses an emergent design to explore the experiences of faculty teaching in a newly renovated, large-capacity Active Learning Classroom (ALC). The present study takes first- and second-order barriers (Ertmer, 1999) into consideration for a specific type of technology-integrated classroom, the ALC, and looks at faculty barriers…
