Abstract

This practical session will demonstrate the design and activities of the ‘Learning Places’ project. Spaces, teaching approaches, facilities and resources that support student learning where re-evaluated; the results informed the implementation of a number of innovative teaching practices, which in turn have had a strongly positive impact on the students learning experience.The ‘Learning Places’ project includes a number of cross school and programme activities with both staff and students involved. These activities include; the design and fitting of a pilot classroom to test the SCALE-UP (Student Centred Active Learning Environment with Upside-down Pedagogies) approach to teaching large cohorts, student compilations of their learning experience through the use of ‘Photo-voice’, print and digital publications, joint staff and student drawing workshops, networking events and the project website.
