Re-Imagine Space for Learning

How can your school do things better?

20 Apr 20151 May 2015


There needs to be better evidence for the decisions we make when designing and creating learning environments. Much of what is done, is based on ‘evidence’ that is often not substantiated yet presented as if it were the final word. My friend Peter Lippman, in his book “Evidence-based design for Primary and Secondary Schools” relentlessly and rightly argues the point. Indeed Peter Barrett alludes to this in his recent study that led to his “Clever Classroom” report (see my post: Understanding Complexity in Clever Classrooms).

So, can your school do things better? At the OECD Centre for Effective Learning Environments we are aiming to provide answers.
